Photo Display of SE Missouri's Native Plants and Wildlife to be on Display at Keller Library

Dexter, Missouri - The Keller Public Library will be the home of the MINGO Photo Contest winning photos exhibit through the month of December.

Photos feature native wildlife and plants, and people in nature. The photos show the considerable photographic talent of youth and adults in southeast Missouri. 

Winter is a special time to visit Mingo National Wildlife Refuge.

Waterfowl continue to arrive on the refuge.

The resident eagles are hanging around their nests, with eagles from the north adding to their numbers.

Deer are more easily seen in the winter. 

The refuge is open from daylight to nightfall every day.

The Visitor Center Wildlife with its natural history exhibits is open weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm during the winter months.
