Quivira National Wildlife Refuge, along with Cheyenne Bottoms, was recently named one of the Eight Wonders of Kansas. As a part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, Quivira National Wildlife Refuge offers opportunities for wildlife observation and photography, environmental education and interpretation, and hunting and fishing. Bird watching and wildlife viewing opportunities abound at Quivira. The Refuge has two large salt marshes, and both are excellent places to look for birds such as mallards, wood ducks, pintails, white pelicans, shorebirds, and more. Additionally, bobcats, coyotes, and other mammals are frequently seen in various locations. Each season is unique, and each is worth exploring.
Quivira is open during daylight hours, and there is no entrance fee.
