      The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service manages an unparalleled network of public lands and waters called the National Wildlife Refuge System. With more than 570 refuges spanning the country, this system protects iconic species and provides some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities on Earth.

      Our Species

      The marshes, bogs, forests, marshes and upland meadows of this Refuge form a habitat network important to a diverse and abundant group of plant and animal species, including waterfowl, anadromous fish and migratory songbirds.
