  • Great nature asset. Particularly like drive through nature trail. Wife and I are fans of Sandhill Cranes which we can see here.
  • what a beautiful refuge! I had my grandchildren's photography done here!
  • This refuge is expansive and beautiful. The Wildlife drive is something to do more than once to see each season. Spring brings purple lupines. There is a large eagle nest. Fall colors are another amazing sight. Come have a looksee!
