OLD TOWN – The leaves are changing color and the air is starting to get cooler, so Hirundo Wildlife Refuge is celebrating with Fall Fest.
The wildlife refuge had special events going on all weekend.
Saturday included an “owl-mania” and canoe trips. There were also local vendors with nature made products.
“It’s just wonderful to see kids playing outside on a day like this. There’s nothing more important for kids than to be out in nature and experience the natural world and eventually become stewards of the natural world, which we desperately need,” said Dick Andren, the vice chair of the board of trustees.
Hirundo Wildlife Refuge has 2,400 acres and 7.5 miles of trails that are open to the public year round.
