James River National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is one of four refuges that comprise the Eastern Virginia Rivers National Wildlife Refuge Complex. The refuge encompasses 4,200 acres of forest and wetland habitats. The refuge was created in 1991 to protect nesting and roosting habitat for the then threatened American bald eagle. A secondary objective is to provide an opportunity to view wildlife in its natural environment, so that the public may better appreciate the refuge's role in conservation of wildlife resources.
