“Working with others, to conserve, protect and enhance fish and wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.”

Description:
Missisquoi refuge is one link in a chain of refuges for migratory birds that extends along the Atlantic Flyway between northern breeding grounds and southern wintering areas. The refuge provides important feeding, resting and breeding habitat for migratory birds, especially waterfowl, in the northern Lake Champlain section of the flyway.

Refuge lands also protect the Shad Island great blue heron rookery, the largest colony in Vermont.
