What is the Theodore Roosevelt National Wildlife Refuge Complex?

In January 2004, the Consolidated Appropriations Act changed the name of the Central Mississippi Refuges Complex to Theodore Roosevelt National Wildlife Refuge Complex. Two additional refuges were added to the five-refuge Complex: Theodore Roosevelt National Wildlife Refuge and Holt Collier National Wildlife Refuge. The Complex name change reflects Theodore Roosevelt’s conservation legacy as Father of the National Wildlife Refuge System. The two new refuges were named to honor President Roosevelt, and the legendary African-American sportsman and hunting guide, Holt Collier. Theodore Roosevelt National Wildife Refuge Complex now includes seven refuges: Hillside, Holt Collier, Mathews Brake, Morgan Brake, Panther Swamp, Theodore Roosevelt and Yazoo National Wildlife Refuges.
