...A Bird's Eye ViewThis 108-foot tower was built by the Civilian Conservation corps in 1936. The Sand Lake CCC camp ran from 1925 through 1939 and housed several hundred men. They built many of the dikes, fences, and facilities you see on the Refuge today. The tower was a great place to spot fires, watch for poachers, and study large flocks of migrating birds. It is now used by our visitors to get a spectacular view of the Refuge.
