About Stillwater NWR Complex

snwr admin officeStillwater National Wildlife Refuge Complex includes Stillwater, Fallon and Anaho Island National Wildlife Refuges. The Complex headquarters are based in Fallon, NV.

Fallon National Wildlife Refuge is managed as part of the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge Complex. A National Wildlife Refuge Complex is an administrative grouping of two or more refuges, wildlife management areas or other refuge conservation areas that are primarily managed from a central office location.  Refuges are grouped into a complex structure because they occur in a similar ecological region, such as a watershed or specific habitat type, and have a related purpose and management needs.  Typically, a Project Leader or Complex Manager oversees the general management of all refuges within the Complex. 


Stillwater NWR Complex staff include a: Project Leader, Deputy Project Leader, Biologist, Refuge Operations Specialist, Administrative Officer, Visitor Services Manager, Heavy Equipment Operators, Fire Management Officer, and seasonal workers such as the Youth Conservation Corps, Biological Technicians and student interns.  The Friends of Stillwater NWR actively support refuge programs with on and off-site outreach and education projects, special events and fundraisers.

All staff are centrally located at the Complex administrative office in Fallon NV, and support all refuges within the Complex.


The Stillwater NWR Complex headquarters is located at 1020 New River Parkway, Suite 305 in Fallon, NV 89406. Office hours are Mon - Fri, 8am - 4:30pm. Closed on Federal Holidays. Call for current refuge information at 775/423-5128.
