Swans at Fort Niobrara NWR

Grassland birds and deer can be seen along Refuge roadways throughout the year. Bison can be viewed from Refuge roadways depending on where the herd is located. Due to the presence of bison, the best photographic opportunities occur while staying in your vehicle. Wildlife generally feels less threatened by vehicles than by pedestrian traffic. Bison are dangerous, give them plenty of space and do not approach them on foot.

Maps and additional information may be picked up at the Visitor Center.
