Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge


The Refuge was established in 1958. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service manages the refuge primarily for nesting and feeding of water fowl. The varied habitat of the Iroquois Refuge supports many other wildlife species including: other migratory birds, mammals, reptiles, fish and amphibians. Public hunting, fishing and trapping are tools used to manage wildlife populations competing for limited habitat. The refuge offers many opportunities for you to enjoy our wildlife heritage. Refuge trails, overlooks and some fishing areas are open to the public year-round, weather permitting, from sunrise to sunset daily.
