From majestic bald eagles to beautiful red foxes, from bear and beavers to deer, porcupines, moose and more, there are lots of opportunities to get a good look at our abundant wildlife right across the region. Keep those big moose in mind, too, when you travel at night. It’s a good idea to reduce your speed and keep your eyes peeled. Though elusive during the day, moose sometimes make their way onto busy highways during the evening hours.
