|This 6,226-acre Refuge lies within the Mississippi flyway, along the Mississippi River in western Wisconsin. The diverse habitats within Trempealeau Refuge support a variety of wildlife species, including the Federally-threatened bald eagle, the State-endangered osprey, and the State-threatened Blanding's turtle, all of which nest on the Refuge. Schools, universities, and other groups are welcome and encourage to visit and study nature. Diverse Refuge habitats provide a wonderful outdoor classroom for many educational group activities. Groups can schedule guided walks, specific curriculum-based programs or utilitize prairie and wetlands educational trunks by contacting the Refuge Park Ranger. The Refuge celebrates International Migratory Bird Day in May and National Wildlife Refuge Week in October - schools are encourage to participate in Refuge festivals for they can provide excellent learning opportunties. If your groups plans to visit the Refuge with or without the assistance of a Refuge Park Ranger, please notify the Refuge office prior to your arrival (608-539-2311, ext. 16).
