Please follow these Rules of the Road for better viewing and visitor safety:
Depending on the season, you have a chance to see several species of ducks, marsh birds, shorebirds, eagle, osprey, and other birds of prey! Muskrat stay busy in the pool spring through fall; white-tailed deer are most likely seen right before dawn and dusk; and a lucky visitor might see a mink!
