Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge

A wildlife refuge on the border of Maine and New Hampshire, Umbagog is home to moose and many hiking and paddling opportunities.

Unfortunately, this wild area is threatened by sprawl, development and fragmenting wildlife habitat. The Wilderness Society works in and around the Umabagog National Wildlife Refuge to:

  • Expand its protected areas.
  • Protect endangered animals and plants.
  • Improve recreation opportunities in the Refuge.
