Navarino State Wildlife Area and Nature Center
This 15,000-acre property is a mix of
prairie, woodlands, marshes and flowages. The Wolf and Shioc Rivers
shape the character of this landscape that is home to many species of native
mammals including badgers, coyotes, porcupines and beavers. A nature center
offers visitors educational opportunities
and there are programs led by staff naturalists. There are prairie
restorations to explore, or enjoy a 47-mile, self-guided auto tour of the property.
