Wildlife Drive Open @ Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge

An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until September 6, 2021
Built in 2010, the 6.5-mile, selfguided, one-way auto route meanders past forests, grasslands, marshes, open water pools, and the Shiawassee River. Along the way you will find observation platforms and parking areas to help you enjoy the refuge more. You also will have better opportunities to see large concentrations of waterfowl, shorebirds, herons, eagles, and a great diversity of other wildlife. In addition, you will be able to see the management practices the refuge uses to attract the wildlife.
