Quivira National Wildlife Refuge
Quivira National Wildlife Refuge

United States, Kansas


[edit] Overview

Quivira National Wildlife Refuge is teeming with birds and wildlife at all times of the year. Spring and fall are the best with hundreds of thousands of migratory birds and waterfowl. Plan on spending at least one full day, if not two or more. Quivira NWR is one of the crown jewels of the Central Flyway. A series of salt marshes, with two large ones, it is fed by the Rattlesnake and Peace creeks, as well as abundant ground water and artesian springs and rainfall. Over 400 species of birds migrate through and/or inhabit Quivira NWR. The refuge is well managed and there's lots to see and do in and around the 29,000 + acre refuge and beautiful surrounding sand prairie.
