Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge
This 5,000-plus acre wildlife refuge is managed by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The refuge was established in 1961 from land acquired from the "'Wapanocca Outing Club," originally formed in 1886. Because of its strategic location in the heart of the Mississippi Flyway and the diverse habitat, the refuge is a prime wintering area for migratory waterfowl and a major stopping place for migrating warblers. Bald eagles, great blue herons, great egrets and anhingas nest on the refuge.
