Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge

Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge, established in 1936, lies within the Mississippi River flyway. This 6,226 acre refuge contains rolling prairies, rich wetlands and bottomland forests which support a variety of wildlife species. It is an isolated backwater, providing needed resting and feeding areas for waterfowl and other birds. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the principal federal agency responsible for conserving, protecting and enhancing fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit for American people. Several plant species from the refuge have been identified as being particularly useful for making phenological observations.
