 Ridgefield NWR Complex:
Updates, Goals, Projects

by Christopher Lapp, Project Leader,
Ridgefield NWR Complex

Most of us frequent Ridgefield NWR and Steigerwald NWR, but did you know that the Ridgefield NWR Complex also includes Pierce NWR and Franz Lake NWR? 

Christopher Lapp has been Project Leader for the Complex for nearly 3 years. He will update us on new planned bridges, habitat restoration projects, reintroduction of threatened and endangered species, land acquisition at Steigerwald, current staffing, water level management, bird populations, and the role of Friends of Ridgefield NWR. 

There will be time for most of your questions.  Let's welcome Christopher and build understanding between Vancouver Audubon Society and the refuges.  We have our own observations and ideas.  This could be an interesting, good conversation.
