EVENTS

Visit the Blue Heron Trails

There is always something to see at the Refuge.  Come to Blue Heron Trails and be surrounded by the songs of Redwing Blackbirds and Meadow Larks.  Keep your eyes open for all sorts of wildlife.  A bird/animal list is available for download at Wildlife List and Blue Heron Trails is open free, 7 days a week.  

There are occasional docent led walks (fall through spring) and staff led kayak trips on the lakes (summer).  These events take place in areas that are not normally open to the public.

And remember to bring your camera and your binoculars!
