Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge  GALLOWAY – The Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, will present a program tracing its history 7 p.m. Friday, March 21 in the refuge headquarters auditorium. 

From its beginnings as the Brigantine National Wildlife Refuge in 1939, Forsythe has grown to be a major stop on the Atlantic flyway, providing more than 47,000 acres of habitat for American black ducks, Atlantic brant, piping plovers and many other species.

As part of the "Evenings at Forsythe" program series, refuge manager Virginia Rettig will talk about how the refuge grew and evolved. The program is free and all are welcome.
