Summary:The second full week of October is not only Earth Science Week—it is also National Wildlife Refuge Week! During this time, you are encouraged to consider the legacy of Rachel Carson, an early leader in the environmental conservation movement, and the resource management activities of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). The following activity is aligned with the National Science Education Standards and offers cross-curricular opportunities to integrate science and English. You may want to set aside some extra time for reading and research. You may also want to visit a national fish hatchery or national wildlife refuge to make the most of this learning opportunity.
