Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge, Spokane County, Washington

Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge
This refuge during lake spring and early summer is absolutely beautiful with all the wildflowers, waterfowl (ducks
and swan, canadian geese), elk, deer,  etc. Great place to get out into nature. This is a protected area so there is only the sound of nature. Visit to learn more. THERE IS NO BOATING/KAYAKING ACCESS TO LAKES WITHIN THIS PARK. This area is enjoyed via the many trails and by car along the road!
