The River "S" Unit of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge has a 4.2 mile auto tour route and 1.5 mile seasonal hiking trail. The auto tour is an excellent way to see the Refuge. A pair of binoculars is a must and a camera makes it even more fun !!!

River Otters can often be seen swimming, feeding, and playing in the canals.

The following is a collection of images taken of the River Otter. Also, link out to the "Trip Logs" to see more images of various birds, wildlife, and wildflowers taken each day.
