Saturday, May 14, the refuge celebrates its 80th anniversary, having first opened May 20, 1936. The much newer visitors’ center hosts the celebration from 9am-1pm. There will be a bird hike, guided walks, cake and more. Free for everyone.

Our questions – what is the status of the refuge and how land may or may not be taken away from the refuge? Also, can anyone stream live video from the Saturday celebration? We’d love to see the refuge on this special occasion.

Viva Wild Nevada!
