Overview and quick history of the landscape, wildlife and people that make
the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuges what it is, a natural wonder of diversity.
“There is probably no more important waterfowl area in the country than these refuges
in the Upper Klamath Basin… (the refuges “act like a waist in the hourglass’ (so)
“all the birds inn the Pacific Flyway funnel their way through this area in their
annual migrations.” Secretary of the Interior, Stewart Udall, 1962
The Klamath Basin National Wildlife Complex is made of six refuges: Lower Klamath, Tule Lake, Clear Lake, Upper Klamath, Klamath Marsh and Bear Valley National Wildlife
Refuges. These are wonderful places for all. Over 490 species of birds, mammals,
reptiles, amphibians and fish have been found in the Upper Klamath Basin.
