Located in the fertile Willamette Valley of northwestern Oregon, Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge is situated in open farmland near the confluence of the Santiam and Willamette rivers. The Willamette Valley, with its mild, rainy winter climate, is an ideal environment for wintering waterfowl.

    There are a lot of things to see at the Refuge. With the depleting number of wetland habitats in the Willamette Valley, Ankeny NWR is a great way to see what the valley once looked like. The wetlands on the refuge provide a sanctuary for wintering waterfowl, wading birds and shorebirds. Eagle, Pintail, Egret and Mallard Marshes are just a few of the wetland habitats on the Refuge that will hold water throughout the year. Smaller ponds that are worth visiting are Wood Duck Pond, Frog Pond, Dunlin Pond and Killdeer Pond.
