Would you like to get more out of your trip to Seney National Wildlife Refuge? Some wildlife can be difficult to see, but trained staff and volunteers know where to look or listen. Join us tour mornings at 10:00 a.m. to experience a guided tour of the refuge. The tour will take about 2 ½ hours depending on the topic of the tour. We will be on the lookout for a variety of wildlife while sharing information on the animals we see, the history of the refuge and current management practices.

Hitch a Ride

Please meet inside the visitor center to coordinate vehicles, pick up binoculars and begin the tour. The tour leaves at 10:00 a.m. but we suggest that you arrive 15 minutes before departure. The visitor center opens at 9:00 a.m.

Space is limited in refuge vehicles and is available on a first come first served basis. All others are welcome to follow in their own vehicles.


Visitors will be delighted to see common loons, trumpeter swans, Canada geese, muskrat, beaver, and a variety of other interesting animals. On this tour we will use not only our eyes but our ears as we journey through the refuge listening to the calls of frogs, American bittern, and other common animals that cannot always be seen but frequently heard.
