Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge contains a variety of habitats that are actively managed to benefit the many wildlife species that use them. Management activities along the Minnesota River Valley include restoring habitat through biological control, prescribed burning, water control structures, hydroaxing, invasive plant removal, integrated pest management, seeding, planting, encouraging natural regeneration, and working cooperatively with neighboring cities, land management agencies, and organizations. Through the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, refuge staff work with private landowners and form effective partnerships to restore and/or enhance wildlife habitat within a 14-county working area.
