Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge – Luminary Hike Cancelled

Given the current weather conditions and warm temperatures expected to continue throughout the week, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Luminary Hike. We will keep an eye on the weather and if snow returns, we could potentially reschedule the Luminary Hike. We will continue to work hard to bring you the unique events you love. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1936 and is nestled along the eastern edge of the mighty Mississippi River. The scenic drive to the refuge along the Great River Scenic Byway entices travelers along the way.
