In this fast-paced world, reconnecting with nature is more important than ever. To achieve this, people are becoming increasingly interested in exploring wild places on their own.  As a result, Two Ponds consistently offers a free self-guided nature brochure with several interpretive locations and descriptions throughout the Refuge – available at the main kiosk.

Two Ponds Tuesdays

Time and again, people are encourage to give back to their community's natural resources and reduce their footprint on the planet.  Urban wildlife refuges like Two Ponds serve as an oasis for native wildlife and migrating birds throughout the year.  So get outside and come help us improve the Refuge for animals and people alike.  Tools and materials will be provided-and reservations are not required.
