Spring on the Refuge

Go Wild! Sundaes on Saturday

Stop by the Oak Savanna Learning Center on Saturday June 17 1-3 PM and learn about our plans to build an outdoor amphitheater at the refuge.

Acres of lupines!  Wildflowers, especially prairie lupine and hoary puccon are easy to see on the wildlife drive. (posted May 30.) Some spring migrant and most summer resident birds are also easy to find.  

Refuge HQ is open standard hours: Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 4 pm.   The Eagle's Nest Nature Store is open Thursdays and Saturdays from 10-2.
