Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge ...
The Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge is located on the shore of the Lower Columbia River, 10 miles downstream from Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington, with the headquarters being located in Ridgefield, Washington. It is bordered on the east by Lake River and on the west by the Columbia. Sections of the Refuge (it is comprised of 5 "Units") reach as far south as Vancouver Lake. The Ridgefield Refuge was established in 1965 as a winter habitat for the dusky Canada goose whose nesting areas in Alaska were severly impacted by the violent earthquake of 1964. The refuge covers over 5,000 acres of flood plain habitat, seasonal and permanent wetlands, and agricultural lands.
