Snowy owls are moving into South Dakota this year and several have been seen in the area, as well as eagles, so now is a great opportunity to view waterfowl and raptors.


Waterfowl use of the Refuge may change daily due to the interaction between weather and migration events.
If you are planning a trip, feel free to contact Headquarters (605-685-6508) during normal business hours of 7 AM to 3:30 PM MST Monday through Friday excluding Holidays to check on road conditions.
