Featured Species

Originally purchased by the Corps of Engineers to capture sediment from the Yazoo Basin Headwater area, Hillside National Wildlife Refuge continues to evolve. Hillside National Wildlife Refuge's dominant habitats are hardwood forest bottomlands with oaks and cottonwood trees in the higher elevations, and willow, bald cypress and tupelo sloughs or "brakes" in lower elevations. These habitats provide for the needs of a variety of wildlife species.
