Connecting Urban Communities with Nature at San Diego Bay & Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuges

In February 2015 Summit Scholars of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) produced a documentary film for the San Diego National Wildlife Refuges, highlighting two of the four Refuges they manage. This movie hopes to inspire the neighbors who surround these refuges to come walk the trails, and experience exhibits and various environmental educational programs. San Diego National Wildlife Refuges manage wildlife and habitats, from coastal marshes to oak woodlands; connecting people to the rich biological diversity in their backyards. Visit us today!
