Hailstone National Wildlife Refuge is an unstaffed satellite refuge and is part of the Charles M. Russell Complex. The Refuge is open to hunting of migratory game birds, upland game birds, and big game as well as hiking and wildlife observation.
Location and Contact Information
Hailstone National Wildlife Refuge was established as an easement refuge in 1942 to provide a rest stop and breeding ground for migratory waterfowl. It also provides habitat for pronghorn, and prairie dogs. Many other small mammals exist along with horned lizards, and rattlesnakes.
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.
