Welcome To The Mid-Columbia River Refuges

The Mid-Columbia River National Wildlife Refuge Complex provides management and support for seven national wildlife refuges and one national monument. Our refuges stretch from the picture-postcard Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge, with Mt. Adams towering in the background, to Pendleton's recreation destination, McKay Creek National Wildlife Refuge. In between, you'll find the geologic wonder of Columbia, the teeming waterfowl of McNary and Cold Springs and Toppenish, and the incredible wildlife diversity of Umatilla. And covering 4 times as much acreage as the rest combined, the Fish & Wildlife Service's first national monument, Hanford Reach, with its majestic elk, rich history, and towering white bluffs.
