Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge
Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge, located in the Downeast region of Maine, was established in 1937 to protect and provide habitat for American woodcock and other migratory birds, endangered species, and other wildlife. The refuge is divided into two divisions, Baring (20,277 ac) and Edmunds (8,871 ac), and contains a myriad of habitat types, from rocky shores along Cobscook Bay to Northern hardwood and boreal forests.
Moosehorn is recognized for being the only refuge in the system that has put most of its efforts into research and management for the American woodcock, a species of high conservation concern, by maintaining a mosaic of young even-aged forest stands, creating a multi-aged forested landscape.
