Guided hikes for the whole family.
The tours will take participants into the refuge's Special Use Area during the height of the elk mating season, a unique opportunity for wildlife viewing. At this time of year the bull elk compete for available females to form their harems. To vent their feelings of frustration and aggression, the bull elk produces a high-pitched whistling sound. Tour participants have the opportunity to hear the bugling and to view elk in their natural habitat. Members from the Association of Friends of the Wichitas serve as Interpretive guides for the tours.
"Stars over the Wichitas" interpretive programs study major constellations and other heavenly bodies. Bring your own optics, or view the night skies through a 13” Dobsonian telescope.
