UL Bend National Wildlife Refuge provides a rare opportunity to experience wild lands and wildlife in a natural setting and in nearly the same surroundings as encountered by the Lewis and Clark Expedition in 1805. Within the UL Bend Wilderness Area, visitors can experience undeveloped land that has kept its primeval character providing an opportunity for solitude and unconfined recreation.

What We Do
Because UL Bend National Wildlife Refuge lies within the boundary of the Charles M. Russell Refuge, they are managed as one refuge. Many of the resource management actions that take place on CMR include UL Bend such as fire,management and management. The overall management goal is to promote biological diversity and maintain the natural abundance of native plants and wildlife. Science is the foundation upon which conservation decisions are made. We use research, monitoring and the best-available science to inform our work to conserve fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitat.
