  History
Continued . . .

Since the 1960s, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) has been purchasing lands around the original Refuge with Federal Duck Stamp money and developing these into waterfowl production areas (WPA). In 1991, the Service, with the help of Ducks Unlimited, began constructing several dikes and water control structures with funding from two North American Waterfowl Management Plan grants. Recent and future land purchases are aimed at acquiring land needed to develop more managed pools on the Refuge.
