Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge

The 40,000-acre Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge supports some of the richest habitats and most diverse wildlife of the Pacific Northwest . Elevations range from 1,800 to 5,600 feet, encompassing lowland Ponderosa Pine forests, upper montane firs, spruces, hemlocks, and cedars , as well as streams, lakes, and marshes. The Little Pend Oreille River, a branch of a complex watershed of streams, lakes, and marshes within the refuge, tracks through the northern section. Open meadows and former farmlands add further habitats. This refuge helps preserve a once-threatened regional White-tailed Deer population, and it is one of the few places in the state where Moose occur. At least 186 bird species, including a great variety of woodpeckers, have been observed here. A detailed map of back roads is essential in this area.
