Come visit the Prairie Marsh Wildlife Drive, a winding, 9-mile long gravel road that will bring you in close contact with wildlife and their habitats. Success in seeing wildlife depends on observation skills, timing, the season, and just plain luck. The timing of your visit makes a difference; wildlife is most active in early morning or late afternoon. If you visit during peak water conditions in the spring and fall months, you will enjoy watching ducks, geese, swans, and shorebirds that stop here during their migration.
