Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1937 to serve as a refuge and breeding area for migratory birds and other wildlife. More than 50 miles of refuge roads and trails are closed to vehicular traffic but open to hiking, cross-country skiing, and of course birding. Black bears, white-tailed deer, moose, otters, and beavers are also in evidence. Trail and road maps are available at refuge headquarters in Baring. One of the most northern national wildlife refuges on the Atlantic Flyway, Moosehorn is an important nesting and feeding site for waterfowl. Wading birds, shorebirds, upland birds, Bald Eagle, and Osprey nest here, dependent upon the Baring Division’s 17,200-acres of prime habitat. Besides all this, 23 species of warblers nest at Moosehorn. Also, Moosehorn is intensely managed to produce and maintain habitat for American Woodcock.
