Frogs, bugs, and birds will be a part of Wildlife Day on Sunday, June 1, at Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the refuge headquarters, 1547 County Road 565 in Vernon.

The public is invited to come during that time to see and discover the many animals that make their home in the refuge and our backyards.

People can try tracking animals, explore a stream to see the tiny animals hiding in the water, see what are the most colorful creatures, bird watch, or search for amphibians. Children can create their own insect and families can try one of the challenge games. Volunteers from local organizations will be on hand to answer questions about the wildlife, offer suggestions of ways to attract or discourage wildlife around your home, and provide details about the lives of the animals.

The free event will be held rain or shine. For more information contact the refuge at (973)702-7266 ext. 10 or visit the Friends of Wallkill River Facebook page.
