Willapa National Wildlife Refuge protects wild species and wild spaces. This makes the refuge an outstanding place for wildlife watching. Many ducks, geese and other waterfowl find sanctuary in the refuge during spring and fall migration. Large flocks of shorebirds gather along the shorelines and extensive mudflats throughout the fall, winter and spring months. The Refuge is also home to a wide variety of other wildlife, including mammals, amphibians, insects, and songbirds. The best time of day to view wildlife is in the early morning or early evening.
