General Information

Description - Maxwell National Wildlife Refuge is located in the high plains area of northeastern New Mexico. Several playa lakes are located within the Refuge. These lakes are major attractions to waterfowl migrating down the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.

Attractions - The Refuge's juxtaposition offers migratory birds an excellent resting area as they traverse the mountains and plains which separate the Canadian River and Arkansas Watersheds.

Climate - This southwestern state is well known for its hot, dry climate. Most areas experience cool winter weather, due to the general high elevation of the region. The southern areas of the state normally don't see any snow in winter. The northern areas and higher elevations will accumulate some snow during the winter and many mountain passes are not maintained.
