Fodor's Review

The Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge, on the edge of town, is nearly as pristine as it was before development encroached upon the wilds in this part of the state. Within its 2,800 acres reside 235 species of birds, 41 species of mammals, and 17 species of reptiles and amphibians. Bald eagles, osprey, deer, and muskrats are frequently seen along the preserve's 2 mi of nature trails and in the wildlife-viewing area. There are children's fishing and waterfowl clinics

in the summer and fall. Fishing is permitted on the river, but not on the refuge ponds. Archery season for deer and waterfowl hunting occur during their specific seasons in autumn.
