The Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge is an integral part of a nationwide network of 553 refuges maintaining approximately 100 million acres of land and water dedicated to the protection of the nation’s wildlife resources. The Oxbow consists of 1667 acres of river, wetland and upland habitat and is home to a wide variety of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, including several threatened and endangered species. It is also an important stopping point for migratory birds.
Spring is certainly here. Green frogs, bull frogs and American toads are making their calls.
White-tailed Deer shed their beautiful reddish-brown coat in the fall to replace it with a grayish-brown one which provides good camouflage. Read more about White-tailed deer under "Educational Programs".
