The Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge wouldn't have many feathered friends if some laws hadn't been passed.

Bob Danley looks back in time to a pivotal time in natural history in this week's Metcalf Wildlife Journal.

It's on our Youtube channel, along with some other great reports and videos. Browse at your leisure.

The Metcalf Wildlife Journal is heard Thursdays at 8:05 a.m. on KLYQ 1240 AM Radio. This week, though, because of the holiday, it is exclusive right here.
