Friends of the Refuge
For over 25 years, the Seney Natural History Association has sponsored interns at Seney National Wildlife Refuge. Many interns go on to have careers in natural resource related fields.
Seney National Wildlife Refuge in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula was established in 1935 by Executive Order for the protection and production of migratory birds and other wildlife. At nearly 96,000 acres, Seney National Wildlife Refuge is the 8th largest National Wildlife Refuge east of the Mississippi River and is diverse in both the number of ecosystem types present and the number of wildlife species using these habitats. Seney National Wildlife Refuge also administers island refuges in Lakes Superior, Michigan, and Huron, as well as the Kirtland’s Warbler Wildlife Management Area in the northern Lower Peninsula.
The Refuge offers numerous recreational opportunities including a seven mile Marshland Wildlife Drive, roads open to biking, a self guided interpretive hiking trail, paddling the Manistique River, bird watching, nature observation, hunting, fishing, photography, hiking and a visitor center.
