Mission Statement

To provide for public benefits associated with fish, wildlife, and wild areas, by preserving the Upper Mississippi River floodplain ecosystem for the enjoyment and use of this and future generations.

Description

National Wildlife Refuge

This 261 mile Refuge was established by an Act of Congress on June 7, 1924, as a refuge and breeding place for migratory birds, fish, wildlife, and plants.

The north end begins at the confluence
of the Mississippi and Chippewa rivers near Wabasha, Minnesota and the south end is near Rock Island, Illinois. Just over 240,000 acres of wooded islands, marshes, and backwaters comprise the Refuge.

It's an anglers paradise, a waterfowl hunters dream, and a birdwatchers bounty.
