Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge Week

On Saturday, we spent the day at Chincoteague Wildlife Refuge on Chincoteague Island in Virginia.  We were one of many exhibitors there to celebrate the wildlife that lives in the park.  The refuge is here to protect the native and migratory species of wildlife and their habitat.   Local artists, wildlife and marine organizations, and wildlife enthusiasts gathered at the visitor center for a day of exploration and fun.  There were activities, exhibits, and speakers to enlighten visitors of the abundant wildlife on the island.  We were excited to be there to share with folks ways to Leave No Trace while watching the wildlife at the park.  We reminded them to never feed, follow, or chase wildlife and to observe all wildlife from a distance.  
If you are ever on the eastern shore of Virginia, be sure to check out Chincoteague Island!  
Safe travels...Kate and Tracy
