Submitted Article
The staff and Friends at Sherburne National Wild-life Refuge have their 2014 Schedule of Events published and available on their website at:  www.fws. gov/refuge/sherburne.
The first event is a Family Snowshoe Trek, being offered both Sat, Feb. 8 and Sat, Feb. 22, from 1 to 4 p.m.  A Valentine’s Day Moonlight Ski for adults is scheduled for Fri, Feb. 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. on the Blue Hill Trail.
Beginning in April, other tour and program topics include moths, butterflies, birds and wildflowers.  An open house event to celebrate spring and Inter-national Migratory Bird Day is May 10, and their annual Fall Wildlife Festival will be Oct. 4.
All tours and events are oriented toward families, unless otherwise noted, and are free of charge – thanks to a partnership with the Friends of Sherburne not-for-profit support group.
Sherburne Refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and is located near the cities of Princeton, Zimmerman, and St. Cloud, in central Minnesota.  Website:  http://www.fws.gov/refuge/sherburne/.
