About the Refuge

Boyer Chute Floodplain

Boyer Chute National Wildlife Refuge was established to recover fish and wildlife habitat in and along the Missouri River and to restore essential wildlife habitat that became scarce after the river was "improved" for navigation half a century ago.

Today, Boyer Chute National Wildlife Refuge provides a rare opportunity to experience rare Missouri River floodplain habitats that have largely disappeared from the landscape. These diverse prairies, floodplain forests, wetlands, and riverine habitats provide for the needs of resident, migratory, and endangered species. Wildlife-dependent recreation and education opportunities are provided to the surrounding communities including a major metropolitan area.
