This is a great place to view ... whatever is visible at the time. We have been to Finley at various times of the year and have seen elk, deer, huge flocks of geese, ducks, hawks, gophers, ground squirrels, owls, wood ducks, and sparrows.

Finley wildlife refuge is internationally famous for birding. It also provides wildlife viewing (Elk, Fox, coyotes, etc), walking paths, hiking trails and a small gift shop. Come out and enjoy something different every season!
