Location: Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge in Shelby/Basom/Alabama, NY

One of the best kept secrets in WNY and we found it!! The Niagara Frontier Chapter will host a presentation and guided tour of the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge in Shelby/Basom/Alabama, NY on Saturday, May, 13, 2017 at 10:30am. The refuge serves primarily as a nesting, feeding, resting and staging areas for migratory waterfowl. The varied habitats support approximately 266 species of birds, 42 species of mammals, plus reptiles, fish, amphibians and insects. Bald eagles have maintained an active nest on the refuge since 1986. Management goals also address the needs of species of special concern including black tern, black ducks, osprey, American woodcock, and peregrine falcons which use the refuge during some time of the year. This will be a great family and guest event, the trails are well groomed for easy walking. Bring a bagged lunch, your cameras and binoculars! Details and directions in the spring newsletter.
