Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge encompasses over 6200 acres of prairies and wetlands.  The Refuge is home to a diversity of plants and animals, including rare species and habitats such as wetlands, prairies and savannahs.  The Refuge is an important resting and feeding site on the Mississippi Flyway, a major international bird migration corridor. Continuing development along the Mississippi Flyway has reduced the suitable area available to migrating birds for critical rest stops, making the Refuge increasingly important.
