There are many great photographic opportunities during a visit to Sherburne Refuge, especially along the Prairie’s Edge Wildlife Drive. Prairie wildflowers bloom from late spring through fall, waterfowl and other wetland birds are abundant, and bald eagles nest nearby. Even songbirds will often sit long enough for a quick shot when using your vehicle as a blind. With a stop at the beginning of the Drive, sighting notes left by Roving Interpreters or other visitors provide you with current information on species being seen and where to look.
NOTE: The Prairie’s Edge Wildlife Drive has been re-routed this year, with the one-way portion of the tour going clockwise, giving visitors a different view of the landscape.
