Buckhorn Wildlife Preserve
Just eleven miles from Olney, this facility features deer, turkey and other small game hunting. It is also available for meetings and events.
Hunts are semi-guided. A typical five-day hunt will include six days on the property and five nights of lodging at a local motel. Bow, muzzle-loader and firearm hunts (and combos) are available in season.
Covered picnic shelters, a playground, boat slips, a fitness trail and disc golf are among the amenities here.

Sanctuary for a wide variety of bird species
The discovery of white squirrels in the Olney area more than 100 years ago spawned local legends and continuing interest. The albino population has flourished with the aid of vigilant individuals and organizations. Search for them in area parks. Be careful, though, they are nurtured and protected by the residents, businesses and city fathers.
