William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge

The William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1964 and consists of 5,706 acres encompassing a variety of habitats including seasonal wetlands, native prairie, oak savannah, riparian forests, and cropland. This land was set aside to preserve the specific wintering habitat requirements of the dusky Canada goose. By partnering with neighboring businesses and individuals, wildlife benefits from lands nearby the refuge as well. Habitat loss throughout the Willamette Valley  has made the refuge increasingly more important for preserving native species biodiversity of both plants and animals.
