The popular auto trail around the Edwards Waterfowl Production Area east of Morris will be closed for the season on October 13.  The trail will reopen again around May 1, 2019 depending on the road conditions. 

The auto trail begins three miles east of Morris on County Road 10.  It is a gravel road where people can see different types of wildlife habitat and examples of wildlife management practices used by the Fish and Wildlife Service.  The auto trail also provides a nice opportunity for wildlife viewing.  The auto trail is open daily from sunrise to sunset from spring until the opening of the pheasant hunting season.
