Comments: First volksmarch held in Bennett County in over 20 years. Great time of year to visit refuge to view the fall migration of birds. This walk is held on the same day as the Pine Ridge Volksmarch. You can register for the Lacreek walk at the Pine Ridge walk held in the morning. After doing the Pine Ridge walk, take Hwy 18 east out of Pine Ridge to Martin.
