Bear River bird refuge offering free nature films
Sometimes getting close to nature can be a frustrating and discouraging experience for children. The Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge and Friends of the Bear River Refuge are providing a way to build a love for nature in the warm confines of an auditorium.
The refuge is showing a free, family-friendly nature film each Saturday in November starting at 1 p.m. in the 200-seat auditorium of the Wildlife Education Center.
