The purpose of limited-interest national wildlife refuges is to provide habitat and breeding grounds for migrating waterfowl, shorebird, grassland-nesting birds, and other wildlife.
Limited-interest Refuges Conservation Plan
The management of limited-interest national wildlife refuges is set by the Comprehensive Conservation Plan and Environmental Assessment – North Dakota Limited-interest National Wildlife Refuges. This comprehensive conservation plan was developed to guide the future management of these limited-interest national wildlife refuges and to develop a better partnership with current landowners. Please contact Nick Kaczor at (303)345-4299 or Nick_Kaczor@fws.gov with any questions.
