National Wildlife Refuges across the country provide opportunities for visitors to make their own connections to the natural world. Self-guided hikes and seasonal staff-led events help visitors learn more about the wildlife and habitats behind the landscapes.
Chautauqua Refuge provides a calendar of auto tour events throughout the year. These events are free, geared for youth and adults and provide wildlife viewing opportunities within and around the South Pool of the refuge.
Auto tour events typically coincide with Eagle Day, International Migratory Bird Day and National Wildlife Refuge Week. Contact the refuge for more information about upcoming auto tour events, 309-535-2290.
