Finley Wildlife Refuge

April 24, 1994

Our leisurely exploratory tour (six stops) around the 5,000-acre William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge included three of the five most scenic short loop trails for a total of five miles. Among the habitats found at Finley (wetlands, oak savanna, young oak forest, old growth maples, native uncultivated prairies), the riparian natural forest along Muddy Creek is the most unusual. Besides experiencing most of this habitat diversity we also saw the Park Headquarters, the historic Feichter House, Cabell and McFadden Marshes, Beaver and Cattail Ponds, old Pioneer quarry and research areas Pigeon Butte and Maple Knoll, and of course wild flowers and birds. The leader, Dot Leland, was happy to share this Finley day with Donna & Bill Eimstad, Velma Shirk, Kevin Clark and three non-members: Lynn Baizley, Jean Skinner and David Webb.
