Thousands Visit the Muleshoe National Wildlife Refuge Every Year

Just south of Muleshoe, there's a place that averages 13,000 visitors each year.

Muleshoe Wildlife Refuge Manager Harold Beierman says, "We get people from all over the world that come here to see the sandhill cranes because they are in such large numbers. We have wintered as much as 250,000 cranes in a single season."

From October to March, the sandhill cranes make their home at the Muleshoe National Wildlife Refuge. It's the oldest refuge in Texas. The 5,809 acres of land is home to the cranes, water fowl and other animals. For more information, click here.
