Create it and Wildlife Will Come!
Additional refuges were created in the 1950s through the 1980s, forming the Sacramento NWR Complex. Four Refuges - Sacramento, Delevan, Colusa, and Sutter - and one Wildlife Management Area - Butte Sink - were created to provide wintering habitat for waterfowl and reduce crop damage. These lands consist of wetlands, grasslands, and riparian habitat. The fifth refuge, Sacramento River NWR, was established in 1989 to protect and restore the River's riparian habitat along portions of the Sacramento River from Red Bluff to Princeton.
