  • I saw over ONE MILLION snow geese today! Migration season is an exciting time. This winter over 800 Swans stayed at the refuge. The Wildlife changes from season to season, but I enjoy it every time I go.
  • Awe-inspiring when inhabited by vast numbers of migratory snow geese. Also makes for a serene, peaceful backdrop while you wait for your totaled car to get rolled back onto the wheels and towed off the interstate.
  • This is my favorite place to go to observe nature. The first time I went was in early December. There were Bald Eagles and over a quarter of a million ducks and geese. It was impressive. It was a two hour drive with 3 young kids and worth every minute.
  • Saw on our educational channel. Definitely worth a side trip on vacation. It's history and success is impressive.
  • When my boy was younger all of his friends & classmates made a day of it! Through the school & boy scouts, was soooo much fun! Miss those days. ;(
