Seneca Falls, NY
A beautiful wetlands area for waterfowl and wetland dependent wildlife. The refuge provides resting, feeding and nesting habitat. It is situated in one of the most active flight lanes in the Atlantic Flyway. There are also wooded areas and grasslands. Bald eagles & Osprey are among the birds there. Other animals include: deer, muskrats, turtles, etc.
My husband & I have driven along the NYS Thruway many times, looking at the refuge alongside the highway. We finally stopped and visited. It is amazingly peaceful and lovely with sounds of birds singing.
The visitors’ center includes a gift shop, lots of information and an osprey webcam. It is free to walk or drive along the trails.
