Little Sandy National Wildlife Refuge

Little Sandy National Wildlife Refuge was established under a conservation easement and is closed to the public. It is part of the National Wildlife Refuge System and is managed for the benefit of wildlife and habitat. The bottomland hardwood forests of this refuge provide important habitat for resident, migrant and wintering birds. These habitats also shelter a host of other wildlife and fish species.

Unlike most National Wildlife Refuges, this refuge has no public access. Protected by a conservation easement, the land is privately owned but the habitat is protected from development by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The landowners voluntarily agreed to preserve the natural values of the property for conservation.

For more information, please contact the headquarters for Little Sandy, which are collocated with Caddo Lake National Wildlife Refuge.
