One of nine National Wildlife Refuges in Oklahoma, Salt Plains is an excellent destination for the bird watcher, wildlife watcher, hunter, fisherman or gem seeker. As well as being habitat for over 300 species of birds, the refuge has been designated a Globally Important Bird Area, a Member of the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network and critical habitat for the endangered whooping crane. Winter months are prime for eagle viewing, while spring and fall draw thousands of migrating waterfowl to the area. The trails, auto tour and outdoor activities are fun for all members of the family. Guided tours are available with prior reservations.
