After months of construction, the new five-mile Auto Tour Route is finally
open at Attwater Prairie Chicken National Wildlife Refuge!
The new route features better views of the prairie and a better opportunity
to see Prairie-Chickens in their native habitat. There is also an
interpretive viewing platform about halfway around the loop, where visitors
can enjoy sweeping views (up to 5 miles in every direction) and learn about
prairie management, invasive species and the recovery of the Attwater's
An active booming ground is located just beyond the viewing platform and
early risers may be rewarded with views of booming males at sunrise.
The new alignment brings visitors back to the headquarters, so be sure to
stop in during business hours and record what you see so all our visitors
will know what to look for during their trip around the Refuge.
If you have any questions or constructive feedback, feel free to contact me.
