 This spring nearly 600 youngsters  enjoyed a field trip to Hagerman NWR.  We will be happy to help plan a fall field trip for your school!

Tram Tours at Refuge

All aboard!! Take a 60 - 90 minute trip along Wildlife Drive on the Carlos and Eulalia Cardinal Express, our open air, all-electric tram.  Perfect for viewing geese and waterfowl in the marshes. Tours run at 10 am Wednesdays, and 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.  For January, Saturdays and Sundays only.   Binoculars are provided, courtesy of the Ft. Worth Audubon Society.

The tram seats nine adults confortably and we can  add children in center seats.  Please make a reservation by calling the Refuge, 903 786 2826; NOTE -  please do not leave messages after hours as volunteers cannot access the Refuge message system.  AND - please let us know if you need to cancel so others make take your place!

Tours are free, those who wish to may make a donation to the tram maintenance fund.

Come prepared - during cool/cold weather, bring jackets and caps, etc. as you will experience wind chill when the tram is in motion.
