Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge
A Unique Natural Area In Tucker County
The Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge, is the nation’s 500th! The Refuge works to preserve the unique wetlands and uplands of this high elevation, moist valley.
Visitors can enjoy the refuge by participating in wildlife-dependent recreation, including wildlife observation and photography, hunting, fishing, environmental education, and nature programs. The combination of wet soils, forests, shrub lands and open lands throughout the valley provides a diversity of wildlife habitats. In these habitats, some animals, such as deer, raccoon, geese and squirrel are easy to see. Others, such as mink, bobcat and barred owls stay hidden most of the time. Beaver build dams from trees, manipulating water levels to their advantage. Turkey and ruffed grouse provide a challenge for hunters and birders. Over the years, native brook trout in area streams have been joined by other species of trout and bass. Don't miss this hidden gem "tucked" away in beautiful Tucker County.
