ORTONVILLE JUNIOR TROJANS PRESCHOOL CLASS, taught by Kylene Nelson and Nancie Haukos, enjoyed a field trip to the Ortonville Flower Shop last week to kick off their "flower week" at school. They were able to see the large cooler that holds all the flowers, as well as the little cooler that holds all the beauti- ful flower arrangements for people to buy. They looked at many different kinds of plants and enjoyed seeing all the other great things they have there too. Before they left they received a special treat bag and a free bal- loon ticket. Refuge Auto Tour Route open Now that flood waters have receded and cleanup and repairs have been made, the Big Stone National Wildlife Refuge in Odessa announces that the Auto Tour Route portion of the Refuge is now open for automobile use as well as hiking and biking. Hours of operation during the spring and upcoming summer months will be fi'om 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily including Saturday and Sundays. Because the wetland pools and river surrounding the route have ample water there should be some excellent viewing opportunities for waterfowl and other wetland dependent wildlife species well through the remainder of spring and early summer. A portion of the Bike Trail, which originates at Big Stone Lake and ter- minates at the Refuge Tour Route is closed for all bike and pedestrian use until June 15. This is to allow a pair of bald eagles, which have established a nest near the trail, a chance to fledge their young without undo disturbance. Eagles often will abandon their nest when faced with continu6us human disturbance, especially during this time of year. This portion of the trail is identified by closed gates across the trail north of the Refuge boundary and where it intersects the Tour Route. The riverview access and fishing pier, located just east of Odessa will be reopened hopefully by May 15. The facilities there were damaged by flood- ing and vandalism making the pier un- safe for small children. Repairs should be completed soon. Please remember these Refuge lands are public lands...your land. Enjoy all the natural resources that they offer but use them respectfully. Report any abuse by calling 320-273-2191.
