"Trip Log ... August 1, 2009"
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 !!!

This trip includes ... Semipalmated Plover ... Mallard ... American Coot ... Canada Goldenrod ... Broadleaf Arrowhead ("Wapato") ...
