It’s a double celebration Saturday, March 29, at the Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge.

The Bitterroot Audubon teams up with the refuge every year for a “Welcome Back Waterfowl” Day, starting about 10 a.m. along the main ponds next to the refuge headquarters.

Bitterroot Audubon members and Refuge staff will have high quality spotting scopes to help identify the various species of waterfowl and other birds that are coming back to the Bitterroot for the summer or are just passing through.

At the Visitor Center, there will be a variety of self-guided activity stations targeting young and old. The public is encouraged to attend this special event and an informal duck identification workshop will continually be ‘looping’ to assist beginning birders. The Society members said on their website: “A variety of yummy snacks will be available to those attending.”

Bob Danley of the Metcalf Refuge also promises a birthday cake, because the national wildlife refuge system is 111 years old this year. Happy Birthday to the world’s largest network of lands and waters conserved for wildlife – the National Wildlife Refuge System!

Dress for the weather and come visit Saturday. You might even see an eagle! (see photo)

For more information or questions, please call Bob Danley at 777-5552 x203 or email Bob_Danley@fws.gov or call Judy Hoy at 777-2487.
