Top 25 National Wildlife Refuges for Birding
JANUARY 30, 2018
There are more than 550 national wildlife refuges in the United States, with at least one in every state and one within an hour drive of almost every major American city. Unlike national parks, national forests, national monuments, and other federal lands which must balance competing interests such as recreation and resource extraction, national wildlife refuges are legally required to be maintained for the preservation of wildlife.
