Virtual Vermonter - Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge

The Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1943 to provide recreational activities "consistent with the primary goal of protecting and managing wildlife habitat." Its 6338 acres are located two miles northwest of Swanton on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain and include most of the Missisquoi River delta. Bird-lovers will be particularly drawn to the Refuge due to the large number of migratory birds that it attracts. The Refuge sports 200 nesting structures and plays host to ring-necked ducks, mallards, black ducks, green winged teal and other species. It also contains the Shad Island Great Blue Heron Rookery, one of the largest in Vermont.

The Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge is open year round from dawn to dusk.
