National Wildlife Refuge System

A new souvenir guide book to National Wildlife Refuges has been published by Lee and Marvin Cook of Wilderness Graphics, Inc. in Tallahassee, Florida. The Blue Goose Passport, named after the symbol of the National Wildlife Refuge System, Is now available at cooperating association bookstores and National Wildlife Refuge concessions scattered across the country.

Co-sponsored by 19 refuge support organizations, the passport may be used to record visits. It provides visitors with information on wildlife viewing opportunities at all 514 National Wildlife Refuges. Many refuges will use ink stamps to “cancel” a visitor’s passport.

Liberally illustrated with key wildlife species, the pocket-sized passport is hardbound with 256 pages. Each refuge listing includes the date the refuge was created and the purpose it serves.
