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. These over 1500 acres of river, wetland and forest are home to a wide variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and many other animals plus plants, including several threatened or endangered species. The refuge is an important stopover point for migratory birds. Continued on "About Oxbow Nat'l Refuge".January 2016 Program:
Our traditional New Year's Day Walk will start at noon time at the end of Still River Depot Road in Harvard. Join old acquaintances and make new ones during a leisurely walk. Bring snowshoes in case of snow. This walk is co-sponsored by the Lancaster Land Trust. Park in the area just over the railroad tracks since the parking lot might be icy.
