Made up of flourishing forests and thriving wetlands, Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge is a dazzling sanctuary found in both New Hampshire and Maine. Because the majority of the refuge includes lands surrounding Lake Umbagog and the Magalloway River, the best access to the refuge is by boat or kayak. Boating or paddling will allow you to explore or paddle through the marshes and waterways. Enjoy great fishing and beauty with the opportunity to see bear, moose, deer, eagles, loons and so much more. Photo by Ian Shive, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. 

The cool blue waters of Cherry Pond reflect a dramatic sky over Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge in New Hampshire. The refuge’s Pondicherry division is a complex mix of forests, bogs, streams, wetlands and open water that provide habitat to black bear, moose, beavers, deer, lemmings, fish and a wide variety of birds. This peaceful scene shows the nearby Presidential Range, home to some of the worst weather in the world. Photo by Jeff Sinon (www.sharetheexperience.org).
