Black Island Wildlife Management Area

Area 240 acres. A mixture of woods and grassland along 0.75 mile of the Elkhorn River. This area consists of wooded habitats (primarily cottonwoods), grassy/weedy vegetation, and some wet grassy areas. It also has access to the Elkhorn River. There are possibilities for migrating, breeding and wintering passerines as well as waterfowl, shorebirds and other water birds. This is not a ”go out of your way” type of area, but if making a trip along Highway 275, it might be a nice side stop. The area is open to public hunting and fishing, use caution during hunting seasons. Located one mile north and four miles west of Wisner.
