Our national wildlife refuges face many issues.

At Trempealeau:

  • The main entrance road often floods

in spring, making access difficult

  • Invasive species such as leafy spurge, purple loosestife and black locust                                              put heavy  pressure on native plants.  

  • The Refuge is home to a globally important and endangered ecosystem,                                                       the oak savannah, so pressure from invasive species is even more significant.  

  • School groups seeking environmental education are turned away because staffing shortages.  

                                                                                                                                                                            

 Learn about these issues so that you can be an

informed supporter of the Refuge.
