General Information

Description - Rice Lake NWR is located in the glaciated transition zone between hardwood and coniferous forest types. Habitats include a wide range from bog to upland hardwoods.

Refuge history centers around the 4,500-acre Rice Lake. For thousands of years, Indians would gather here to harvest the abundant wild rice - and still do today.

Rice Lake is a major migration stopover in the fall for waterfowl, it is noted for its concentrations of ring-necked ducks, up to 100,000 where they feed on wild rice until freeze-up in early November.
