National wildlife refuges offer us all a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with our natural surroundings. Whether walking trails or fishing the lake, the sounds and sights of Supawna’s woods lend serenity to the soul.  

Activities

Supawna Meadows NWR manages thousands of acres of land not only for the plants and wildlife of the area; but also for the enjoyment of the public. There are many opportunities at Supawna Meadows for visitors to take advantage of such as the follow:

Trails

Two foot trails through the refuge’s varied habitats provided excellent opportunities for wildlife observation. The Forest Habitat Trail winds through a hardwood forest and scrub/shrub habitat around a pond. The best time to walk this trail is in spring when you are likely to hear choruses of spring peepers and Southern leopard frogs. 

The Grassland Trail winds through a small portion of upland forest overlooking the finger of a tidal marsh at an observation platform then extends through a grassland area. In the winter you are likely to see a northern harriers and American kestrels foraging over the grassland. Songbirds are present throughout the summer.
