Refuge Map

Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge protects a mosaic of riparian, wetland and upland shrub habitats along 36 miles of the upper Green River. It is a haven to more than 200 species of birds, including all species native to Wyoming. Established in 1965 as mitigation for the construction of Fontenelle and Flaming Gorge Dams, the refuge encompasses more than 20,000 acres along the Green River between Fontenelle dam and the town of Green River, Wyoming.

In addition to providing an opportunity for excellent bird watching, Seedskadee offers world class trout fishing along with waterfowl, upland bird and big game hunting. Historic sites related to early ranching and several crossings of the Oregon, Mormon, Pioneer, Pony Express and California National Historic trails can be found within Seedskadee’s boundaries. The refuge takes its name from the Shoshoni word for the Green River: Seeds-kee-dee-Agie, meaning River of the Sage Chicken.
