Great Bay National Wildlife Refuge

Ospreys, Long-tailed Ducks (or Oldsquaws), and oysters are all part of the natural environment at Great Bay National Wildlife Refuge, which protects almost 6 miles of undeveloped bay shore. The refuge contains a diversity of habitat types, including forested uplands, open grasslands, shrub habitat, forested wetlands, and salt marsh. This diversity supports a wide range of wildlife, including a large concentration of wintering American Black Ducks. Bald eagles winter along the generally open waters of Great Bay and frequently perch along the shoreline. Among the refugeís programs are maintaining habitat for the Karnerís Blue Butterfly and monitoring bird populations.
