LINCOLN – Anglers and other visitors to Duck Lake on the Valentine National Wildlife Refuge will notice some improvements this summer.
A handicap-accessible parking pad and walkway were completed earlier this year. The walkway leads to an accessible fishing dock that was put in place several years ago. The Sandhills Prairie Refuge Association, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service all contributed both time and funding to the project.
“Nebraska Game and Parks and its partners in this project are proud to be able to make a great fishing spot accessible for more anglers,” said Nebraska Game and Parks Fisheries Outreach Manager Daryl Bauer. “Duck Lake is a popular destination for anglers from throughout Nebraska and beyond its borders, and hopefully the new amenities allow even more people to enjoy it.”
The Valentine National Wildlife Refuge is located about 20 miles south of Valentine in Cherry County.
