This walk is on a gravel and dirt road, so strollers are not advised. Wheelchairs equipped with off-road tires should work well.
What NOT to Bring:
Sorry, but dogs/pets must stay at home. Remember, this is a relaxed wildlife viewing walk and we want to minimize disturbance to wildlife.
About the Walk:
Trail consists of a 2 mile (roundtrip) flat gravel and dirt road in a normally restricted area. The walk goes near managed wetlands hosting various winter migrants such as hawks, shorebirds, Sandhill cranes and waterfowl. The path may be muddy if it's been raining or foggy. There will be little shade as you walk, so please be prepared for being exposed to the sun. A non-flush restroom is available in the parking lot before your walk; there is NO restroom available during the walk. Children welcome, but dogs/pets must stay at home. This is a great opportunity for viewing wildlife from a distance; you are welcome to bring binoculars and a camera. This is a slower paced, relaxed walk for viewing wildlife, so please intend to stay with the guide. Remember, the wildlife is sharing the refuge with us, so please respect their home and minimize disturbance.
