The 260-acre Fort River Division, located in Hadley, Massachusetts, is named after the major body of water flowing through it: the Fort River. This river is located in the eastern portion of the Pioneer Valley, drains a 35,830-acre watershed, and is the longest free-flowing tributary to the Connecticut River in Massachusetts. There are a variety of habitat types found within this division, including hardwood forest, floodplain forest, and grasslands. The refuge is currently constructing an approximately 1-mile long fully-accessible natural trail on the division. The trail will likely be completed in 2014. This division is open to the public for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, environmental education, and interpretation. Click the following link for recreation map of the unit.
