U.S. Fish and Wildlife's Virtually Wild Program





Region 4 Education Service Center partners with Virtually Wild! Texas partners to provide students with engaging and interactive virtual field trips.





Wonders of the Wetlands

Situated in the Alligator Capital of Texas, Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge is comprised of coastal marsh and prairie that borders Galveston Bay.  Here, alligators, frogs, birds, snakes, and a lot of other wild critters can be found.  In this program, students will learn about the value of wetlands and the important role they play protecting the homes of humans and wildlife.  Participants will wade out into the wetlands to dipnet for invertebrates and get a close look at a diversity of species that call this habitat home.  Wild featured guests will be highlighted and will vary based on what Park Rangers catch that morning.
