Steigerwald Eco-Blitz!

Get your hands dirty and join us at Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge for our first Eco-Blitz… An Eco-Blitz is a one day event to document as many species as possible with the help of experts in different fields and YOU!

We hope the information collected from this event can be used as a baseline for what species are on Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge prior to our large restoration project taking place in 2019. Join us to discover what awaits you at the Refuge, both out in the open and hidden from the untrained eye. This free family-friendly event is open to all ages. No experience necessary.
