Friends of Turnbull Store
Our group opened a small store on June 30, 2001. We are staffed with volunteers
and are open on weekends only. Our current plans are to be open from March through
October yearly, as refuge visitation drops in the winter months. Our store hours are
11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Items for sale include all sizes of T-shirts, both long-sleeve and short sleeve
for adults, short sleeve only for children's sizes. We also carry regular
sweatshirts for both children and adults, and hooded sweatshirts and hooded zip
sweatshirts for adults. T-shirts carry the Refuge logo of a wetland with an elk and
a great-blue heron. Sweatshirts have the Friends of Turnbull great-blue heron logo
embroidered on the left front and both T-shirts and sweatshirts come in a variety of
colors. We have T-shirts with a Centennial theme and logo. T-shirts with the
International Migratory Bird Day theme should be out
before next May.
Pins, T-shirts, sweatshirts and many other
are reasonably priced and for sale at the
Environmental and wildlife-related books for
kids as well as adults are available at the
Turnbull Store. All proceeds go to the
Friends of Turnbull and the environmental
education programs at Turnbull.
We are also carrying books for both children and adults with wildlife themes.
We stock most of the popular birding guides and most of the Golden Guides,
supposedly for children, but useable by any age. There are sticker books, pond life
activity books, coloring books, and more. We have stocked several of the popular
Lone Pine guides to plants, trees, etc. We have note cards by local
artist/photographers that feature scenes and flowers from the Refuge and have a CD
screen saver by a local photographer that shows the plants and flowers of Turnbull.
Refuge passport books are available, as are collectible pins that show the Friends
of Turnbull great-blue heron.
Proceeds from the Friends of Turnbull Store are used toward the environmental
e programs at the refuge. If you want more information on prices or a
specific book or item, you may contact Marian Frobe, 509-328-0621 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local wildlife displays give kids
hands-on opportunity for learning!
Environmental Education Classroom
The newly remodeled EE classroom is now an exciting place for kids and
teachers! From the volunteer help of many local businesses and Friends members,
the EE classroom is a bright and beautiful place for kids to learn about the
environment and local wildlife. All the wildlife displays seen in the following
photos are from animals (deceased) found at the refuge or donated by local
Raptors swoop from the ceiling and
experience the beauty of wildlife up close.
Other local birds such as woodpeckers
on display. Note the background murals, done
artists, depicting Turnbull habitat.
Here is the "Look Table," at which
identify various animals on display.
