Birdwatch at Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge

953 County Road 32
Walden, CO 80480


Vision Statement:

Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge is managed to benefit the diversity of plants and wildlife found in this high mountain valley of the southern Rocky Mountains.  Wildlife and their habitats come first in the management of the Refuge, before all other uses.  The management plan places great importance on the role the Refuge has in the North Park ecosystem - for the environment and the residents of North Park. The Refuge and its resources are also managed for the benefit of the citizens of the United States.  The Refuge land provides habitat for large mammals, Neotropical migratory birds, nesting waterfowl, fishes and species of concern from national and regional conservation plans.  Through wildlife-dependent recreation and education, people have opportunities to learn of the wonder and significance of North Park's fauna and flora.
