Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge

The Missisquoi has long been recognized as a migration stopover for a plethora of bird species and a haven to native wildlife. It is a balanced blend of marshland and thickly wooded forest and can be viewed from the miles of trails, traversing the grounds.

Not all of the refuge is accessible, and with good reason. The conservationists and ecologists have deemed portions of the space private, strictly meant for the expansion of native populations. But the spaces where humans are welcome to tread can give them keen insight into the reasons for preservation.

Almost 6,000 acres are watched over and admired here, as they should be. To experience Vermont's nature at its most reverential, stop by Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge.
