50th Anniversary Stories

Unexpected Wildlife Refuge celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 2011. Here are some stories of those who have been affected by Unexpected Wildlife Refuge and its founders.

Drawing of spider handing from web When nightfall comes he builds it anew;
That fabulous orb, bejeweled with dew.
As the spiderís web, so the dream of man
Intricate, trembling, a breakable plan.
As each night falls he builds once more,
Stronger, firmer than ever before.
The night dew forms, the chill wind sighs,
His dream holds fast until he dies.
