Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge

Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge Review

Thousands of migrating ducks, geese, and sandhill cranes stop here in spring as they head north to nesting grounds, and in late summer as they head south before the cold hits. It's amazing to watch them gather in huge flocks, with constant take-offs and landings, yet no one ever running into anyone else. This is also a great place to view songbirds and moose. Five miles of nature trails lead through fields, forest, and wetlands, and are open year-round. Don't miss the daily one- to two-hour naturalist walks. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, Creamer's Dairy was the northernmost dairy in North America from 1910 to 1966. The farmhouse is an interpretive center and gift shop open daily 9:30 am–5 pm mid-May to mid-September and Saturday noon–4 pm the rest of the year. Call for listings of year-round events.
