Lostwood National Wildlife Refuge lies in the highly productive prairie pothole region that produces more ducks than any other region in the lower 48 states. The refuge is a land of rolling hills mantled in short-grass and mixed grass prairie interspersed with numerous wetlands. Established to preserve a unique wildlife habitat, Lostwood is an important link in our nation's system of National Wildlife Refuges.
