Overview

Published for the 100th anniversary of the National Wildlife Refuge system in 2003, this guide describes each of the more than 530 refuges nationwide, their habitats, the species of birds and mammals to be found there, and general information about accessibility and facilities. In addition, former U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Lynn Greenwalt provides a brief history of the refuge system, beginning with Theodore Roosevelt's establishment of the first wildlife refuge at Pelican Island, Florida in 1903. The book also discusses "proposed and possible" new refuges, threats to the refuges (such as the prospect of drilling for oil at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska), and lists the nonprofit organizations that support the work of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in its management of the refuges. Ideal for the casual wildlife watcher or hunting enthusiast, America's National Wildlife Refuges will prove to be a worthy tribute to an American institution as it begins its second century.

Editorial Reviews

Wildlife Conservation - T. Edward Nickens
Russell Butcher's America's National Wildlife Refuges: A Complete Guide is a grand invitation to visit the country's more than 530 refuges.
Audubon - Frank Graham Jr.
Butcher's book is far more than a guide; it is an invitation to come to know and cherish the 540 units across the entire range of the National Wildlife Refuge System. It mingles history, anecdotes and perspective to give us the best assessment yet of these national treasures.
Dallas Morning News - Mike Maza
If the outdoors is your getaway, this could be the source of trip ideas for the next couple of decades.
2003 Southwest Books Of The Year
This monumental reference work is filled with detailed information on more than 530 locations...good photos...to have all the data between the covers of one book is immensely valuable.
