Mingo National Wildlife Refuge

Mingo National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1944 under the authority of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act as a resting and wintering area for waterfowl and other migratory birds, and for the preservation of bottomland hardwood forest. By the 1930s, the long-term, improper land use of the basin’s natural resources prompted renewed interest in preserving the swamp. Purchase of land for the refuge began in 1944. Through diligent and careful management, the land and wildlife began to recover. For more information visit the Missouri Department of Conservation website.
