With more than 200 bird species on record and over 11,000 acres of space, this refuge is a wildlife lovers' dream. A 45-minute drive from Boise, the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge includes Lake Lowell, which is a popular spot for boating, swimming and fishing. Annual bird migrations make the lake an enchanting place for bird watching. Low water during late August exposes muddy areas that are particularly popular with water birds. From October 1 through April 14 the lake and islands are closed to boats. Check website for more details.
