Jr. Stewards Applications now open

The US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge are offering an exciting program called Jr. Stewards. Our mission for this program is to inspire children and their families to connect and be engaged with the natural world. Does your child have a curious fascination with nature? If so, than this program is for you.

This free program is open to ages 9 – 14+.  There are only 16 spots open and it is first come first served.  We meet the first Saturday of each month, beginning March 1st, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. through December 2014.  Registrations must be received by February 15th.

Some of the sessions are:  Discover Life Down Under; Mosquito Hawks, Trip to Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge, and Migration Sensation to name a few.  If you would like more detailed information and download a registration form, click on the Jr. Stewards tab and you will find the form there along with the 2014 Schedule.  Contact Pam at the refuge office at 815-273-2732, ext. 116 for more information.
