The Andreoff Wildlife Area sits along the Hardin and Wyandot county line and is just 10 miles northeast of Kenton. This 861-acre wildlife haven consists of wetlands, tall-grass prairies and woodlots. Over 86 species of birds are known to breed on the area, and nearly 175 bird species have been sighted, including several rare waterbirds.
The wetlands provide wildlife watchers with the chance to view sandhill cranes, trumpeter swans, American bittern, green-winged teal, and king and sora rails. Hard to find species such as the northern harrier, bobolink, and dickcissel also frequent the prairies, along with countless pollinator species. The area is open to wildlife viewing on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.
Hunting on the west side of CR 215 is by permit only to allow for high quality hunts. Hunts on the area are drawn through the state’s lottery system each July. Controlled trapping opportunities are also available.
The property in Wyandot County was purchased with funds from the H2Ohio program. This portion of the property will be open to public wildlife viewing, hunting and trapping.
