Wintering waterfowl flock by the thousands, sprawling marshes and forests cover the grounds, and crawling critters hide beneath the native plants and in the tall grass. Audubon’s Sanctuary in Corolla is host to hundreds of individual species, and more are being identified and recorded regularly. As of Spring 2016, over 175 bird, 21 mammal , 18 reptiles, 9 amphibian, 385 plants, 50 aquatics and untold invertebrate species have been documented on the property.
With this level of biodiversity, the Sanctuary is not just a special place for the birds but for all wildlife to thrive. Learn more about the variety of birds, wildlife and ecosystems to be explored across the 2,600 acres of the Audubon Sanctuary here:
