About Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge

The Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1965 to provide wintering habitat for the dusky subspecies of the Canada goose.  Today, the Refuge preserves both habitats for wildlife and evidence of the people who once lived here.

The refuge consists of five sections, each unique in habitat and the wildlife that reside there. Two of these sections are open to public visitation and enjoyment, while the remaining three are kept as a sanctuary for wildlife to rest and escape human disturbance. This maintains an important balance of allowing those species less tolerant to human presence to thrive in an increasingly urban area.  The surrounding communities then get the chance to view and experience wildlife and habitat, receiving the many benefits of being out in nature. Visitor activities include trails, an auto tour route, and many opportunities for learning, observing, and photographing wildlife. 

The refuge also preserves the most intact archaeological site on the lower Columbia River, and evidence of at least 2,300 years of continuous human occupation. That history and culture is interpreted through the Cathlapotle Plankhouse built in 2005 and open to visitors on the weekends in the spring and summer. 

The refuge is a place where people can share a bond with nature, and each other, bypassing outdoor traditions to new generations. As the population of the region increases, the refuge will become even more important to wildlife and those seeking to connect with nature.

Please explore this website to learn more about what you can do at the refuge and how you can get involved in its conservation mission.
