Need something for the kids to do when they can't go outdoors? Check out the WI Jr. Duck Stamp Contest! On Saturday, Feb. 4th, kids can create a 9x12 piece of waterfowl art at the refuge Visitor Center and submit it for the March 31st judging. Each has a chance to win prizes or to even become the next U.S. Federal Junior Duck Stamp! All entries must be submitted to the Necedah NWR by March 15th.
