Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary Trails


The trails throughout the Sanctuary are now closed for Waterfowl Refuge Season (which runs from October 15th to April 15th), however, the Ellis Island trail is open and will remain open until December 15th. We hope to see you out here soon!

Riverlands has over 8.5 miles of trail featuring viewing platforms and bird blinds. Explore on your own or take a scheduled guided tour with an naturalist. The trails bring you through prairies, marshes, and bottomland forest habitats, and provide great viewing opportunities for the great variety of birds that live in or migrate through this unique area.
