April 21, 2013: Ellis Island Trail and access to Ellis Island is temporarily closed until further notice due to high waters. Access to the back side of the Lock and Dam is also closed at this time.

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.
