The Prairie's Edge Wildlife Drive will open on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at sunrise. The drive is open to the public during daylight hours only. PLEASE NOTE that you will now be driving the route clockwise - which is something new! You'll see the landscape and wildlife from a completely different perspective.
Bald eagles, sandhill cranes, waterfowl and songbirds are arriving - there's something new to see every day.

Refuge wetlands provide habitat for up to 40 pairs of breeding sandhill cranes each year. The unison call of these tall, stately birds is a treat to hear in spring, and by mid-summer, an observant visitor may be treated to the sight of one or two rusty-colored ‘colts,’ following their parents and learning to forage on insects and other invertebrates.
