Winter Begins on the Refuge
The migration of Greater Sandhill Cranes has moved on from our area. We still might see waterfowl but the loss of open water limits the places we can explore. Look to the skyies and trees for winter visitors such as Rough-legged Hawks.
Refuge HQ is open standard hours: Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 4 pm. The Eagle's Nest Nature Store will remain open Thursdays and Saturdays from 10-2 until the end of the Christmas season. As of November 29, the Prairie's Edge Wildlife Drive is closed.
Members receive semi-annual newsletters in their mail. You can now view June 2022 PDF version.
