Perhaps the fastest growing activity on national wildlife refuges in the past ten years has been wildlife photography. The refuge has two portable nature photography blinds available for use on refuge lands. They weigh 9 lbs. and are 68" square by 78" tall with four window openings, and fit in a backpack carrying case. Blinds may be reserved for up to three days and can be checked out at either visitor center. A $25 deposit is required, payable by cash or check at check-out, and refunded when the blind is returned in good condition. To reserve the photo blind, call refuge staff (952-854-5900) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
