1 Wildlife Refuge

The gently rolling terrain of Benton Lake National Wildlife Refuge is surrounded by native prairie grass and surrounded by mountain ranges on three sides. Benton Lake protects, enhances, and restores the Nation’s wildlife heritage. Covering 12,383 acres, the Refuge is a 6,000-acre shallow wetland created by the last continental glacier thousands of years ago. By Executive Order of President Herbert Hoover in 1929, Benton Lake was set aside as a “refuge and breeding ground for birds.”
