On the Refuge...​

The Friends of Trempealeau Refuge Invites you to join us Wednesday, October 12th, 6:30 p.m. for a special presentation by Ellen McDonah, artist, kayaker, teacher, and writer. Hear about Ellen's extraordinary journey down the Mississippi River, becoming the first woman to kayak the length of the river solo.

This event is held in the Outdoor Wonders Learning Center and is free and open to the public.



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.
