Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge

Fish and Wildlife Service, Washington.


Steigerwald Lake NWR was established in 1987 to offset lowland habitat loss caused by construction at the Bonneville dam. These lands were established to reduce the impact of this loss and provide more habitat for migrating and resident wildlife. Since then smaller pieces of land have been added to create what is now Steigerwald Lake NWR. 

Staff and partners strive to work with the community to restore and conserve Oregon oak woodlands, pastures and wetland habitats. These lands support salmonids, wintering geese, ducks and other wildlife that thrive in tandem with the River and the communities that surround them.
