The Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge is an integral part of a nationwide network of 553 refuges maintaining approximately 100 million acres of land and water dedicated to the protection of the nation's wildlife resources. These over 1500 acres of river, wetland and forest are home to a wide variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and many other animals plus plants, including several threatened or endangered species. The refuge is an important stopover point for migratory birds. Continued on "About Oxbow Nat'l Refuge".
October 2, 2014:
Come join us for a special presentation by Peter Myrick, biologist for Mass Fish and Wildlife, at Lancaster Community Center in Lancaster, MA, at 7:00 pm on Thursday, October 2. Peter Myrick is a herpetologist and made studying snakes his career. Learn some wonderful facts and admire one or more live snakes from our own area. Snakes really are our good neighbors of whom we don’t need to be afraid, at least not in our region. In many cultures in ancient times they were revered and considered protectors of home and hearth.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge and the Lancaster Community Center, and is free and open to the public, young and old alike. For further information, phone Rona at 978-779-2259.
