On The Refuge...
Listen to the chirps, chatters, croaks, and quacks throughout the refuge. Spring is here and the refuge has awakened with a symphony of noises and songs. We have many new happenings at the refuge. Buds are bursting, bright green blades of grass are popping, and soon baby wildlife will be stumbling. Another new event at the refuge is the installation of a floating deck/dock at Kieps Island boat landing! A big thank you to the Bob Clark Family for donating it to our Friends group in memory of Judith Ann Clark. The deck is the perfect place to sit on benches and enjoy beautiful birds, wildlife, and breathtaking scenery. The side of the dock is helpful to launch canoes and kayaks for a paddle on our placid pools. Visit the refuge and discover what you can see at our new dock!
