    Toppenish National Wildlife Refuge is adding to its wetland acreage with the conversion of a weed infested upland to approximately 30 acres of prime wetland habitat! The restoration will not only increase the amount of feeding and loafing habitat available for migratory and wintering water birds, but will also improve the function of the adjacent wetlands by providing greater connectivity.
