Desoto Bend National Wildlife Refuge

As a popular tourist destination to view migrating ducks and geese, the DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge provides sanctuary for waterfowl as they migrate between the Arctic nesting grounds and the Gulf Coast wintering areas. Typically, more than 75,00 ducks, mostly mallards, and a half million snow geese rest and feed at DeSoto, making it an ideal location for field trips and gatherings of avid bird watchers.
