Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge is 11 mi. e. on CR 7. This 61,500-acre refuge embraces marsh, meadow, brush land and aspen forest. An unsuccessful farming attempt in the early 1900s drained the land, altering it as a habitat for wildlife. It is now home to numerous waterfowl and shorebirds. Observation towers allow visitors to view wildlife and native plant species. The 4-mile Lost Bay Habitat Drive tour route and three short walking trails are within the refuge. The peak viewing time for bird migrations is late September to early October. Deer hunting is permitted in season.
