Refuge Notebook: Skilak Loop project to increase recreation opportunities

As you read this, perhaps you are wondering, "Why is the Refuge Fire Management Officer writing about wildlife habitat projects and wildlife-oriented recreation opportunities?" Well, I have to say that I've asked myself that same question. As I thought how to answer that question, I realized there is a very simple explanation. It's really all about the critters, about their habitats, and about our (public) access to places where wildlife live. I also realized that every refuge employee and volunteer, even the firefighters, play a role in wildlife and habitat conservation "for the continuing benefit of the American people" (from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - Mission).
