Annually, Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge in Decatur hosts thousands of sandhill cranes, ducks, geese, pelicans and other waterfowl. It also attracts an increasing number of endangered whooping cranes. It is home to almost 300 species of birds, plus mammals and reptiles including – yes – alligators!

Hear about this natural wonder, and learn about the wildlife that inhabit its 34,500 acres and how those inhabitants have changed over the years.

This program is open to the public.
