General Information

Description - Crane Meadows NWR was established in 1992 to preserve a large, natural wetland complex. The Refuge is located in central MN and serves as an important stop for many species of migrating birds.

The refuge harbors one of the largest nesting populations of greater sandhill cranes in Minnesota. Unique habitats include native tallgrass prairie, oak savanna, and wetlands with dense stands of wild rice.

The refuge also serves as the base for an aggressive private lands program in Morrison County focusing on the restoration of drained wetlands through voluntary agreements. Acquisition of land for Crane Meadows is continuing as funding is appropriated.
