Refuge ranger Terri Jacobson will lead the six-hour workshops where participants can earn professional development hours. The free seminars are open to many different types of educators. They will learn about helping children make deeper connections to nature and exploring many aspects of wild birds, among other topics. Red River National Wildlife Refuge manager, Pat Stinson told Red River Radio last year that its visitor’s center is a hub for outdoor education.

"We want to use the building to get people in, give them a little activity, to inspire them to get outside to get their boots muddy and wet," Stinson said.

The workshops will be held July 18, 23, 24 and 31 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the refuge’s headquarters in Bossier City.  More information is found a friendsofredriver.org.
