  • Lacreek Vision Statement

    Lacreek National Wildlife Refuge’s wetland resources create a sanctuary within the semi-arid Great Plains landscape. The Refuge provides a great diversity of uses for wildlife and humans alike. Refuge stewards manage hydrology to reflect natural conditions and restore native plant communities of the Lake Creek Valley and the adjacent sandhills for migratory birds and other native wildlife. Visitors learn about grasslands, wetlands, and sandhill ecosystems and enjoy wildlife-dependent recreation. Ongoing cooperation with partners and the public fosters appreciation and builds support for the Refuge’s biological and cultural assets.
