About the Complex

Stillwater is one of 3 National Wildlife Refuges within this Complex.

Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge is managed as part of a National Wildlife Refuge Complex. This an administrative grouping of two or more refuges, wildlife management areas, or other refuge conservation areas that are primarily managed from a central office location. Refuges are grouped into a complex structure because they occur in a similar ecological region, such as a watershed or specific habitat type, and have a related purpose and management needs.

Project Leader who manages all 3 refuges; 

Deputy Project Leader who directly manages supervisory staff and refuge programs; 

Administrative Officer who does payroll, purchasing, contracts for all 3 refuges;

Fire Management Officer who develops prescribed fire burn plans for refuge habitat management;  

Maintenance professionals who keep the roads, trails, buildings, water control structures and other refuge infrastructure safe and working.  

All positions are centrally located in the main administrative office in Fallon at 1020 New River Parkway #305, and support all refuges within the complex.
