The National Bison Range

The National Bison Range, which is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, was established in 1908 and is one of the oldest wildlife refuges in the nation. A large portion of the 18,500-acre range consists of native Palouse prairie. Forests, wetlands and streams are also found here, providing a wide range of habitats for wildlife. Elk, deer, pronghorn, black bears, coyotes, and ground squirrels are just some of the mammals that share the area with 350 to 500 bison. More than 200 species of birds also call this home and include eagles, hawks, meadowlarks, bluebirds, ducks and geese.

Ninepipe National Wildlife Refuge & Pablo National Wildlife Refuge

These areas contain irrigation reservoirs located on Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal lands. There are excellent opportunities to view waterfowl, bald eagles, herons, cormorants, and a wide variety of songbirds.
