A refuge trail. 

National wildlife refuges offer us all a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with our natural surroundings. Located right along the Missouri River, Boyer Chute National Wildlife Refuge provides a number of great opportunities to explore, discover and learn about the plants, wildlife and habitat of the Missouri River floodplain. The auto tour route and extensive trail network are open year-round and visitors can enjoy activities such as hiking, bird watching, and nature photography. The namesake chute runs alongside the auto tour and multiple parking lots provides access for visitors to observe this Missouri River side channel or to try their luck fishing for common river fish species such as catfish and sauger.

In the spring time, look for morel mushrooms in the open areas of the refuge. These prized edibles can flourish in the Missouri River bottomland habitat. 

The refuge also offers hunting opportunities for turkey, white-tailed deer and waterfowl. To learn more about these opportunities or other activities on the refuge contact refuge staff at 712-388-4800.
