Evelyn’s Wildlife Refuge believes in the importance of promoting awareness and appreciation of our native and migratory wildlife through education. It is only through knowledge and understanding that people will value, preserve and protect our environment, wildlife, and their native habitat, ultimately fostering a lifetime of care and respect for America’s wildlife and natural resources.
Education has been an essential part of the mission of Evelyn’s Wildlife Refuge since it was founded. We offer a variety of educational programs facilitated by trained staff and volunteers.
The education outreach at Evelyn’s Wildlife Refuge brings programs to school groups, churches, and community organizations throughout the Tidewater area and beyond. Please contact the Refuge for more information and to schedule one of our education committee members to visit your organization.
The goal of the educational programs are:
- To promote a greater appreciation for native and migratory wildlife and their natural habitat needs.
- To foster awareness of the role of humans in promoting preservation and providing healthy places for wildlife to live.
- Educating children about the importance of wildlife safetyand habitat preservation.
- To provide information on the mission of Evelyn’s Wildlife Refuge.
Evelyn’s Wildlife Refuge also participates in community events with educational exhibits and offers educational opportunities for students in the form of mentoring programs and the youth memberships.
