Crescent Wildlife Area was acquired following the catastrophic 2011 flood. The property is made up of a 5-acre pond filled with a wide variety of river fish species, reconstructed native prairie vegetation, and native wetland vegetation. Crescent Wildlife Area is home to many different waterfowl species, shoreland bird species, wetland insects, amphibians, reptiles, and wetland mammal species. Other wildlife that can be seen on the property include small mammals, deer, grassland songbirds, bald eagles, trumpeter swans, and more.
This area is only a short 10-minute drive outside the metro area and is open for public hunting, fishing, and recreation. So, if you are looking to get out of the house and go for a hike, bird watch, fish, or hunt, Crescent Wildlife Area is a great outlet to explore!
