How many times have to visited the refuge and looked for more than a moose, a bald eagle or a bear? Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge provides habitat for a great variety of species. Sometimes we only focus on the bigger and more charismatic, but don’t miss out on enjoying the diversity your refuge has to offer regardless of their size. Come out and enjoy your National Wildlife Refuge.

Location and Contact Information
American woodcock (Scolopax minor) are studied and managed intensively at Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge. Timberdoodle, mud-sucker, and mud bat are all local names for the woodcock. Unlike their relatives, these reclusive shorebirds have evolved to live in the forests of eastern North America.
There are a variety of ways to get involved at Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge. Volunteers, summer interns and the friends group all greatly contribute to the refuge. Visit our Get Involved page to learn ways in which you can help.
