Connecting with America’s Great Outdoors

Making virtual visitation more accessible

More than 6 million people visit refuge lands around the Midwest Region each year. Refuges provide many great opportunities to connect with the outdoors. Whether you’re into hunting, fishing, or just getting outside - refuges have something for everyone. Today, more and more people consider refuge lands among their favorite places to visit - both in person and virtually.

To make it even easier for you to connect to all of your refuge lands, we have launched redesigned websites for all 57 National Wildlife Refuges and 12 Wetland Management Districts across the Midwest Region. These websites are designed to provide up to date information and help you find what you’re looking for quickly and easily.

Check out your favorite Midwest Region refuge’s website today!
