White River National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1935 for the protection of migratory birds.  The refuge lies in the floodplain of the White River near where it meets the mighty Mississippi River.  Long and narrow, three to ten miles wide and almost ninety miles long, the refuge is one of the largest remaining bottomland hardwood forests in the Mississippi River Valley.  The refuge’s fertile forests and three hundred lakes are interlaced with streams, sloughs, and bayous.  The result is a haven for a myriad of native wildlife and migratory birds.
White River National Wildlife Refuge is one of over 550 National Wildlife Refuges in the United States.  Managed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in the Department of the Interior, the National Wildlife Refuges encompass over 95 million acres of land for wildlife. In 2013, White River National Wildlife Refuge and its watershed was recognized by the Department of Interior as the second “National Blueway,” a new designation for rivers and watersheds of national significance designed to promote and conserve the economic, recreational, and natural values of healthy river systems from source to outlet and across watersheds.
