ARAPAHOE NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE
The Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge is a United States National Wildlife Refuge located in north central Colorado. The refuge is located in North Park in central Jackson County south of the town of Walden. The refuge was established in 1967 to furnish waterfowl with a suitable place to nest and rear their young. It was created in part to offset losses of nesting habitat in the prairie wetland region of the Midwest. It is located in the valley of the Illinois River, a tributary of the North Platte River. It is administered by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.

September 29 Wonderful find
this refuge is not publicized very widely but was a wonderful surprise as we were traveling to view birds and great fall colors. The trip is well worthwhile. There area blinds to photograph from. The pamphlets at the entrance give great information on birds and wildlife.
