Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge

Get a bird’s eye view of Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge from the Headquarters lookout tower. Located in the heart of the refuge it provides a panoramic view of the marshes and woodlands which offer some of the best wildlife viewing in the State. It is the only tower in Minnesota with the ‘Flying Blue Goose’ displayed on the cab.   Wherever you see the Blue Goose symbol you know you are on one of over 500 National Wildlife Refuges nationwide. 


The tower is open 7:30 am - 4:00 pm, Monday thru Friday, every Sunday in June from 1- 5pm, and on special events.  A key must be obtained at Headquarters to enter the tower.  The tower is closed in winter, during inclement weather, and on holidays.  For more information on Agassiz NWR call 218-449-4115 x0 or visit
