Cottonwood Marsh photo by Peter Burke

Holyoke State Wildlife Area - Phillips County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This SWA is mostly prairie, but some distant juniper and Russian-olive breaks might be worth checking in winter for owls and sparrows. There is a tiny cottonwood tangle near the parking lot. About 1.2 miles south of the parking lot on CR 31, on the west side of the road, is a small private pond which may actually be the largest body of water in the county. It is clearly worth a check in spring and fall. The beautiful prairie pastures on the east side fo the road between the parking lot and the pond have Lark Bunting, Grasshopper Sparrow, Burrowing Owl and the like.

Habitat: Grassland/Prairie, Hedgerow/Shelterbelt, Pond
Directions: From Holyoke, drive south on US 385 four miles to CR 14 and turn right (west). Go four miles west to the parking lot on the north (right) side of the road.
