National wildlife refuges offer us all a chance to unplug from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with our natural surroundings.
Location and Contact Information
Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge, Anaho Island National Wildlife Refuge and Fallon National Wildlife Refuge are managed as part of the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge Complex.
What We Do
The National Wildlife Refuge System is a series of lands and waters owned and managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Wildlife conservation is at the heart of the refuge system. It drives everything we do from the purposes a refuge is established for, to the recreational activities offered there, to the resource management tools we use. Selecting the right tools helps us ensure the survival of local plants and animals and helps fulfill the purposes of the refuge.
Some of the key species at the refuge include shorebirds such as the American avocet and long-billed dowitcher; waterfowl such as the tundra swan and canvasback duck; and waterbirds such as the great blue heron and great egret.
