Oh i love this place! Trails are nice an it’s amazing to see all the different types of birds, from small to large. I worked there once for a summer an that was the most amazing experience I had in my... teenage years I’d recommend everyone to walk the trails, either walking or biking, you wont be too disappointed.

Beautiful in any season and easy cross country trails that are safe for beginners and old timers alike.

We love Rydell. Peaceful, quiet and serene. Nicely paved walking paths for my dog and children and great scenery we enjoy exploring!

My kids and I enjoyed walking the trails. Since most are paved, it was easy to push their stroller. They loved the children's activities in the visitors center!

An iconic sign of spring in our area - the pasque flower - started blooming on Glacial Ridge NWR a few days ago.

This past Saturday, a group of volunteers from the Fosston Rotary Club and the Friends of Rydell and Glacial Ridge Refuges Association came out to Rydell NWR to replace a large number of bluebird boxes. These boxes are checked for use annually by natural resource students at the Univ. of MN-Crookston. A number of the nearly 100 boxes on the Refuge were in bad need of repair or replacement.

Thank you volunteers!
