Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge
Trumpeter swans are just one of the many migratory bird species that use the rivers, lakes and marshes of Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge. At 730,000 acres, the refuge presents a stunning and varied landscape ranging from rugged snow-capped peaks to tundra, forest and wetlands. As the easternmost refuge in central Alaska, Tetlin has nesting bird species that are rare elsewhere in Alaska, including sora, sharp-tailed grouse and blue-winged teal. Tetlin shares a common boundary with Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve and Kluane National Park in Canada to form the world’s largest continuous conservation unit.
