On the Refuge...​

​Trumpeter swans are being seen from the observation deck along with coots, shovelers and gadwall.  The sound of geese provides steady background music!


Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge encompasses over 6226 acres of prairies and wetlands. The Refuge is home to a diversity of plants and animals, including rare species and habitats such as wetlands, prairies and savannahs. The Refuge is an important resting and feeding site on the Mississippi Flyway, a major international bird migration corridor. Continuing development along the Mississippi Flyway has reduced the suitable area available to migrating birds for critical rest stops, making the Refuge increasingly important.
