National Wildlife Refuge System - US Fish & Wildlife Service

A healthy Refuge environment will provide opportunities for visitors to enjoy wildlife viewing, hunting, and fishing in a natural setting. Interpreting wildlife and the Refuge’s unique heritage, as well as improving facilities will enhance the visitors’ experience while protecting the cultural integrity of the area. To meet these challenges, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will continue to seek partnerships with other agencies, interest groups, landowners, and local communities. These efforts will result in greater protection of wildlife and fish resources throughout northeastern Washington.

Colville National Forest   

Today's 1.1 million acre forest was first shaped over 10,000 years ago by Ice Age glaciers that carved three major valleys of today's Columbia, San Poil-Curlew, and Pend Oreille River flowing north into Canada before entering the Columbia River. These million acres in the northeast corner roll like the high seas. Three waves of mountains run from north to south, separated by troughs of valleys. These ranges -- the Okanogan, Kettle River, and Selkirk -- are considered foothills of the Rocky Mountains. 

Rural Resources
