On the Refuge...
Join in the Pollinator Festival on June 25th
The highlight of this festival is speaker Stephanie Rathsack who will give a detailed and engaging program on Monarch butterflies. Her presentation is at 10:00 a.m.
Birds are nesting! Take the time to watch for birds carrying nesting materials or carrying food to feed nestlings. Frogs are calling as well. A few spring peepers can be heard, a few green frogs are singing amid the full chorus of tree frogs. Lupine are still spectacular in the prairies.
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.
