MidAtlantic: Audubon Guide to the National Wildlife Refuges : The National Wildlife Refuge System was founded in 1903, under Theodore Roosevelt's leadership, to protect birds from extinction. NWRs are devoted primarily to protecting important animal and bird species and their habitats - and keeping our most important natural lands "forever wild." There are now more than 500 refuge areas in the United States, comprising more than 90 million acres. Most of these natural treasures are open to the public and offer unrivaled opportunities for visitors to observe abundant wildlife. This book includes informative coverage of 23 Mid-Atlantic refuges. Features: overviews of landscape and climate; noteworthy animals and plants; color photographs; outdoor activities, including hiking, canoeing, camping, hunting, and fishing; complete maps, directions, and other useful information.
