Activities abundant at Las Vegas Wildlife Refuge

-A A +A

The 2013 Fall Flight Festival at Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge announces fall schedule and other tours available.
Ponds filled with water from heavy September rains and the calls of Sandhill Cranes are heralding the annual migration of wintering birds. The refuge will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each Sunday in November for the Traditional Annual Fall Flight Festival featuring a 4 1/2 mile self-guided auto drive. Interpretive talks and kids crafts are also scheduled.
The auto tour allows visitors to view the vast spaciousness of the short-grass prairie, ponds, marshes and croplands that serve as important habitat for migratory waterfowl, eagles and hawks along with numerous grassland birds such as mountain bluebirds, meadowlarks, horned larks and sparrows.
Except for this time of year, these areas are not open for general public use, in order to leave an area of the refuge undisturbed for wildlife. Visitors can observe directly how recent rains have filled the ponds following the drought.
Volunteer roving naturalists will be on hand with spotting scopes to help visitors identify birds. No walking is required. Visitors are encouraged to bird from or close to their vehicle so birds will not be disturbed. All events at the refuge are free.
