New York State's largest wildlife refuge! Filled with well-maintained trails and offering a large number of classes, the Iroquois Wildlife Refuge is a haven for animals. It sits in the migratory path of many birds, such as swans and geese. Open all year for a variety of activities including hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing.
Stop into their on-site visitor center to get a quick snapshot of what the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Refuge is all about and all there is to see and do. Upon entry, you’ll be greeted by a flock of birds in flight and below by footsteps, both animal and man. Each exhibit represents part of the Refuge: upland forest, forested wetlands, and emergent marshes. Other displays include interactive stations where visitors can control a camera aimed at a habitat on the refuge, scanning marsh to find wildlife and more. Don’t forget to browse the gift shop area before you leave!
