Activities
Second Saturday Programs

 Second Saturdays  are free nature programs held at the Refuge and are open to the public.  The format is a talk, accompanied by slides, and may include a brief field trip on the Refuge, depending on topic.  Presenters are experts in the presentation topic and are drawn from area colleges, nature organizations and professionals in the field of wildlife/biology.

Second Saturdays at Hagerman NWR evolved after the second Red River Valley Birding and Nature Festival,  held in December, 2006.  A group of speakers had been identifed to serve as faculty for the first two festivals, giving the program committee a good starting point.  Click here for a list of all Second Saturday programs held from the beginning, April, 2007, through December, 2016, and a huge thank you to all these volunteer presenters through the years!

NOTE!!  Second Saturday for Youth, begun in 2009, was discontinued in 2013, in  favor of Youth FIRST, which, by meeting the first Saturday, February - June, and August - December, through 2016 allowed the use of two separate meeting rooms for the two age groups.  In 2017 a new nature series for youth will be launched, The Refuge Rocks, meeting on the THIRD Saturday of each month, January through November. Please see Hagerman Youth for more info.
