Contact: Sara Siekierski-Refuge Manager, 906-630-2015,

Public comments are being accepted on infrastructure improvements at Seney National Wildlife Refuge.

We at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are excited to break ground on a backlog of infrastructure projects at the Seney National Wildlife Refuge thanks to funding provided in the Great American Outdoors Act.

The refuge was established in 1935 during the Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress Administration Era. From the 1930s to the 1960s many facilities and structures were built. We understand the importance of preserving the history of the site and have proposed Seney National Wildlife Refuge be made a Historic District. We are proposing a number of major infrastructure project in 2021 and 2022. Many of these projects will potentially affect some of the newly declared historic properties within the refuge.

Greater details can be found in the “Seney National Wildlife Refuge Great American Outdoors Act Infrastructure Initiatives (PDF file size 14.3 MB)” report.

Thank you for considering commenting on these many initiatives. Please submit your comments by June 25, 2021 to Sara Sierkierski at 906-630-2015 or
