Groups interested in special programs are encouraged to call ahead to make sure staff is available.
Sharpen your birdwatching skills by taking a look at over 100 taxidermy bird mounts at the visitor center. Review a wildflower identification guide and watch a video about the endangered Attwater's prairie-chicken.
Two hiking trails - the Pipit Trail and the Sycamore Trail - traverse the prairie, potholes, and riparian areas. The auto tour loop can also serve as a hiking trail. There's nothing like walking to truly feel the prairie grandeur complemented by prairie potholes.
A 5-mile auto tour loop crosses both prairie and wetlands. Waterfowl watching can be outstanding from the tour loop in fall and winter. Watch for a possible wood stork standing sentinel in shallow ponds summer through fall.
The refuge is open from sunrise to sunset daily.
