Staff and volunteers at Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge will host Meet & Greets on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (October 12-14) from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. along Centennial Trail. The Meet & Greets provide and opportunity to learn about the history of Pelican Island, founded in 1903 by President Theodore Roosevelt, and the many birds and wildlife found at the refuge. The focus of this year’s celebration is the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, the landmark legislation that protects threatened and endangered species and the ecosystems they depend on.
