The Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge is located in
northeast Washington, 13 miles southeast of Colville in Stevens
County. Located on the west slope of the Selkirk Mountain Range,
it is the only mountainous, mixed-conifer forest refuge in the lower
48 states. It was established in 1939 to provide a refuge and breeding
ground for migratory birds and other wildlife.
Come join us on July 26, 2014 and help us celebrate our 75th anniversary. There will be a family bicycle ride (the Blue Goose Chase) on our Auto Tour Loop; check-in starts at 8:30 am. We will also have live bluegrass music with the Brown's Mountain Boys from 11 am to 1 pm. There will be finger food, cake and a raffle. This is a free event so please join us.
