Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge

MNWR is a part of the Montezuma Wetlands Complex (MWC) Project which is an effort by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and Ducks Unlimited, Inc. to protect, restore and enhance wildlife habitat within the MWC.

MNWR We do volunteer work for Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in upstate New York (located on Routes 5 & 20 between Rte 89 and Rte 90; 12 miles W of Auburn); an outstanding place to see waterfowl, shorebirds, and eagles; spring and fall migration periods are particularly good times to visit. There is a visitor center open 7 days/week (closed during the winter months) from 10 to 3 (10 to 4 on weekends); the Friends of the Montezuma Wetlands Complex operate a gift shop inside the visitor center. The refuge itself is open during daylight hours.

LOTW A few years ago, I completed a project for MNWR to create a web site:  Learning on the Wing with information about ospreys, migration, wetlands, and a collection of links to additional educational sites.
