National Wildlife Refuge - Wyoming

Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge is located in western Sweetwater County in the state of Wyoming. The refuge includes 36 miles (56 km) of the Green River, which is a water source for shrubs and cottonwoods in an otherwise arid region. The refuge was established to mitigate wildlife habitat loss resulting from the construction of Fontenelle Dam upstream and Flaming Gorge Dam downstream on the Green River. 220 species of birds have been identified on the refuge including migratory bird species that use the refuge for nesting. Dozens of species of mammals including coyote, porcupine, pronghorn, mule deer, bobcat, and moose are indigenous to the region and are protected under law.
