Maurry Mills

The Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge protects 30,000 acres of land dedicated to wildlife habitat in Downeast Maine. Since its establishment in 1937 the refuge has been managed to provide habitat for a variety of migratory birds and other wildlife. The American Woodcock has been extensively managed at Moosehorn. The talk will describe the habitat management methods of the refuge and the wildlife inventory, monitoring, and research projects that measure the effects of management. Some of the species that will be discussed include Ruffed and Spruce Grouse, American Woodcock, Bald Eagle, waterfowl, secretive marsh and water birds, and amphibians.
