Muleshoe

National Wildlife Refuge - Texas

Muleshoe National Wildlife Refuge is located about twenty miles (32 km) south of Muleshoe, Texas on Texas State Highway 214. The refuge is a stop for migratory waterfowl flying between Canada and Mexico. The refuge includes several intermittent salt lakes, some of which have been modified to extend their wet periods. Paul's Lake, on the east side of Highway 214, is spring fed, and hosts wildlife during times when the other lakes are dry. If sufficient water is present during the winter, the refuge hosts tens of thousands of sandhill cranes. The largest number of cranes ever recorded was 250,000, during February, 1981.
