Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge covers 42,724 acres of rolling forested hills interspersed with lakes, rivers, marshes, bogs and shrubs of glacial lake country. Tamarac lies in the heart of one of the most diverse vegetative zones in North America, where northern hardwood, coniferous forests and tall grass prairie converge. This diversity of habitat brings with it a wealth of wildlife, both woodland and prairie species. Refuge wildlife consists of over 258 species of birds and 50 species of mammals. Spring on the refuge attracts a magnificent warbler migration and fall is highlighted with an abundance of waterflowl including more than 15,000 ring-necked ducks at its peak. Bald eagles are common. Moose and timber wolves are seen occasionally. Tamarac is one of the premier production areas for trumpeter swans in the lower 48 states.
