We're celebrating Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, which was established 95 years ago this month. Bordered by steep wooded bluffs that rise 100 to 600 feet above the river valley, the Mississippi River corridor and refuge offer scenic beauty and productive fish and wildlife habitat unmatched in the heart of America. Take a moment to learn more about this extensive refuge and plan a trip to experience it first-hand.
