Weekly NWR Post

Starting today I am going to do a weekly post about a National Wildlife Refuge. I’ll start with the one I frequent here in Minnesota. I hope to hit at least one in each of the 50 states. I will also provide you with links associated with each of these NWR’s and hopefully some pictures and/or a map. I hope you enjoy.

Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge
Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge is located in the east central region of the state, approximately 50 miles northwest of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area and 30 miles southeast of St. Cloud. The refuge protects 30,700 acres of habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife.

The primary mission of the refuge is to represent a diverse biological community characteristic of the transition zone between tallgrass prairie and forest. Established in 1965 to protect and restore the habitats associated with the St. Francis River Valley, refuge management today focuses on the restoration of oak savanna, wetland and big woods habitats.

This series is a good idea Ben. Especially for those of us who like to travel. It is a good way to tell about an area.
