Seney National Wildlife Refuge
Description: Seney National Wildlife Refuge has been shaped by forces of nature and humans and reflects the evolving face of preservation, conservation, and restoration. Its creation story tells of features left by the glacier in the surrounding area known as the Great Manistique Swamp, and of the land's recovery from the human impact of logging and farming.

Wildlife to Watch: Seney Refuge protects 95,212 acres and was established in 1935 to provide habitat for migratory birds and resident wildlife. Currently, it is home to over 200 species of birds and a variety of mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish, and invertebrates. Its diverse wetland and upland habitats support a wide variety of wildlife, and Seney's programs, events, tours, facilities and opportunities make it "A Great Place to Watch Wildlife."

Special Tips: Wildlife watchers can choose from a seven-mile, self-guided, driving tour; a 1.4-mile hiking trail; and over 50 miles of backcountry roads suitable for bicycling.
