Floods, Flowers and Feathers

When: Sat., May 31, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. 2014

Speaking from experience, don’t let it take you more than two decades of living in the Inland Northwest to make it out to the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. At more than 18,200 acres, the preserve features hundreds of marshes amid pine forests across Eastern Washington’s Channeled Scablands, formed during the Ice Age floods. For the refuge’s third annual spring celebration, learn more about its unique landscape, and why it’s a perfect place for the hundreds of species that call it home or stop there during migration. Festival events include guided hikes to view wildlife, wild flowers and geographical features across the refuge, along with kids’ activities and more.
