The Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge is a rich local resource for learning about our natural surroundings and the creatures that live there. This season, consider participating in one of many field trips offered by the organization. The Ottawa NWR offers activities specifically for children, including swamp tours, arts and crafts, and guided nature walks. The programs can also supplement classroom curriculums and accommodate groups of any age. All events and programs are free, and transportation funding may be available to your group.
