Spring has sprung! The water on the marsh is about 50% open at this point. Lots of Canada Geese have been coming in over the last week and we’re seeing Sandhill Cranes and Trumpeter Swans as well. Common Mergansers are leading the Duck varieties, with a Ringnecks, Scaup and a sprinkling of Canvasbacks. The International Crane Foundation has confirmed the return of three Whooping Cranes-exciting!

Even though the Center is closed at this time, trails are accessible during daylight hours and the auto tour is open. Get out and get some fresh air!
