New Munster State Wildlife Area
Nearly 2,000 acres of mixed habitat makes this property a great place to explore for wildlife. Marshes, bogs, creeks, ponds and a flowage draw a wide variety of waterfowl during spring and fall migrations. In the fall and winter, Great Horned, Long-eared and Short-eared Owls are found here. The forests and conifer plantings are great places to find winter finches, Golden-crowned Kinglets, Brown Creepers, and nuthatches. Also found during migrations are warblers, wrens, sparrows and Yellow-breasted Chats. You can enjoy watching coyotes and deer at dusk.
Directions: Located 1.5 miles northeast of Twin Lakes on Cty KD.
