"The Montezuma Refuge is one of over 550 national wildlife refuges across the country, and refuges are really established to protect habitat for wildlife, so Montezuma is just that," says Andrea Van Beusichem, Visitor Services Manager at Montezuma Wildlife Refuge.
Started in 1938, the refuge gets about 150,000 visitors every year.
"When people visit Montezuma, they are mostly going to see birds." says Van Beusichem. "We are a migratory bird refuge."
The Spring and Fall are the best months to see the most birds, but the eagles call the refuge home year-round.
"Our eagles, our bald eagles are residents, so they'll stay all year long, so there's always a chance to see them," says Van Beusichem.
While Seneca Falls has a refuge for wildlife, just down the road, there's also a refuge for you.
"Montezuma Winery has been in Seneca Falls since 2001," says Donna Lahr, Promotions Manager at the winery.
The Martin family owns the business, but they weren't awlays wine makers.
According to Lahr, "They started out os beekeepers 30 years ago, and their son, Bill, started making honey wine. And that's how the business was born."
They specialize in honey wine, but they also make fruit and grape wine, as well as their very own honey vodka, apple brandy, and will be coming out with a whiskey this year.
On February 4th, the refuge and the winery are holding a special event.
"The winery has a special relationship with the Wildlife Refuge and the Audubon Center in Savannah," says Lahr. "We do a partnership event with them in February. It's called 'Walking in a Winter Winery Land'."
This includes a guided nature walk (with snowshoes, if there is snow on the ground), and bird watching, followed by a Winemaker's luncheon.
