Outdoor Wildlife Learning Site (OWLS)

Hikers, nature lovers and picnickers will enjoy spending time at what locals call The Grove. This grove of mature cottonwood trees just south of Drayton (east side of Hwy 44) marks the site of the old brickyard that flourished in the early 1900s. Today, visitors can explore the site’s walking trails, which are part of an Outdoor Wildlife Learning Site (OWLS). Turn off the highway onto the northernmost approach and follow the north fence line back to the heart of the site. Trails are mowed.

OWLS is a North Dakota Game & Fish Department project in conjunction with Drayton Public School.
