On the Refuge...

Migration is on!  Tennessee warblers, Bay-breasted warblers, so many grosbeaks and orioles you won't know where to look first.  

Turtles sunning, frogs calling, goslings galore.  

Puccoon and birdsfoot violets in the prairies.

Life on the refuge changes every day!
Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge encompasses over 6200 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.
