At 149 acres, Oak Ridge Lake is a major stopover lake during migration for Tundra and Trumpeter Swans. Many types of ducks, herons and egrets stay here all summer. Mallards, Green and Blue-wing Teal, and Northern Shoveler use the grasslands for nesting and rear their young on the lake. As you drive around the property, look for Short-eared Owls, Northern Harriers and Grasshopper and Clay-colored Sparrows, Dickcissels, Willow Flycatchers, Sedge Wrens, Yellow-headed Blackbirds and Long-billed Marsh Wrens. WPA properties are purchased with the monies hunters spend on federal and state Duck Stamps and are managed for the production and harvest of waterfowl.
