National Wildlife Refuges

Statement by Rodger Schlickeisen, November 15, 2001 Cooperative Alliance for Refuge Enhancement (C.A.R.E.) Press Conference

(11/15/2001) - Wendell Berry once wrote, "When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds."

For the 35 million Americans who visit each year, the national wildlife refuge system is a place to find solace with the wood duck and the heron, and many other species. And in these times, Americans need places of refuge.
