Water levels within Felsenthal NWR can be a deciding factor when planning your trip. Make sure the water is safe for any activities by checking the National Weather Service's website or contact the refuge.

What We Do
Over 1,150 species of plants and animals have been documented on the refuge. This number continues to increase as refuge biologists, researchers from various universities, and volunteer citizen scientists document observations during their time on the refuge. Birders help us monitor the presence of both resident and migratory birds.
