Squaw Creek is a 7,350-acre refuge, established in 1935 as a resting, feeding, and breeding ground for migratory birds and other wildlife. It is home to 301 bird species (including nesting bald eagles), 33 mammal species, and 35 reptile and amphibian species. During spring and fall migrations, Squaw Creek's wetlands attract as many as 400,000 snow geese and 100,000 ducks. During the fall and winter, as many as 400 bald eagles have been spotted.

Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge is more than marshes; it includes forest, grassland, cropland and wetland. It is an Internationally Important Bird Area (IBA.) A 10-mile, self-guided driving tour is available.

At the headquarters, you can view exhibits, watch an informative video, and get the latest survey counts for bald eagles, waterfowl and shorebirds.

Visit the Friends of Squaw Creek Nature Shop, located in the headquarters building. To learn more about Friends of Squaw Creek, visit www.SquawCreek.org.
