    Wildlife Viewing: 150x118 Wildlife Viewing - DLWMD

    High water levels have reduced wildlife viewing opportunities at the refuge; however, multiple flooded roads that terminate into Lake Alice offer vantage points for wildlife observation. Be careful when travelling near the refuge. High water has softened many roads in the area.

  • Photography

    Photography: 150x118 Photography - DLWMD

    Perhaps the fastest growing activity on national wildlife refuges in the past ten years has been wildlife photography. That’s not surprising. Digital cameras and cell phones are increasing the number of nature photographers at a rapid rate. You don’t need to purchase expensive equipment or have any experience to get started. A small camera or basic cell phone will do just fine for most visitors.
