      About Us

      Grass Lake National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1942 as a “refuge and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife”. The Refuge serves a staging and nesting area for migrating waterfowl, shorebirds and other migratory birds. In 1997, Grass Lake Refuge was designated an Important Bird Area -  a site that is exceptionally important, even essential, for bird conservation.

      What We Do

      The overall management goal at this refuge is to promote biological diversity and maintain the natural abundance of native plants and wildlife. Science is the foundation upon which conservation decisions are made. We use research, monitoring and the best-available science to inform our work to conserve fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitat.
