Patuxent Research Refuge, National Wildlife Visitor Center

Trail Guide - Print before you and save the refuge the expense.

Open Daily 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM, Closed Federal Holidays
Trails & Grounds Open Sunrise to Sunset, Closed Federal Holidays



If you are here while the visitor center is open, you can also pick up a copy of their National Wildlife Visitor Center GPS Adventure packet.  I've based these virtuals on the 6 activities that are part of the GPS Adventure, so they will be visiting the same locations.  If you complete 3 of the 6 activities, you can return to the Visitor Center for a small prize.

 


Now for the cache, itself.  The given coords will bring you to the first sign along a loop of signs dedicated to various convervationists.  Start at the first sign and work your way around the loop seeking the answers to the following...

George P. M. served 3 terms in Congress beginning in xxAB.

William T. H. was integral in saving a particular species that by xxCD was no longer in danger of extinction.

Ernest T. S. wrote a 400 page instruction book in xxEF that later contributed to the launch of a major world wide movement.
