This Wildlife Refuge In Wyoming Is So Remote, You’ll Practically Have It All To Yourself
The dry, windy, sagebrush desert gives way to the beautiful Green River in an area of southwestern Wyoming that’s so stunning it has been preserved as a National Wildlife Refuge. The river brings thousands of animals to this area each year, but it’s still a spot that’s not often visited. If you want to experience wild Wyoming nature without having to deal with crowds on trails, head to Seedskadee.
Seedskadee Wildlife Refuge is a beautiful sanctuary in the heart of Wyoming's Green River region. Visitors stop in to see birds, mammals, and a gorgeous landscape that will take your breath away.
Despite preserving some of the most beautiful acres in the state - 26,400 of them - and being home to thousands of critters, chances are when you visit, you'll rarely see another person.
You WILL see birds, though, and lots of them! At least 220 species have been spotted making their homes here, and many migratory birds use the area as nesting grounds.
Unique creatures, like this white-faced ibis, can be spotted searching for snacks along the Green River. Because of how low-traffic the refuge is, you can truly observe birds, mammals, and reptiles in their natural environment.
Keep an eye out for popular refuge residents, like trumpeter swans, eagles, and even sage grouse. Watch them for a while and you'll start to realize that they each have so much personality!
Moose can be found throughout the refuge, and they're pretty easy to spot along the river. Coyotes, porcupines, bobcats, and of course pronghorn and mule deer, also call Seedskadee home.
Visitors can enjoy the refuge in numerous ways. In addition to hiking, horseback riding is permitted, as is non-motorized birding.
