Oahu Forest National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

O'ahu Forest National Wildlife Refuge is located on the upper slopes of the misty northern Ko'olau Mountains, and protects some of the last remaining intact native forests on O'ahu. Many of the native plants and animals that once thrived in these forests are either extinct or on the brink of extinction. Management intervention is needed to stabilize native ecosystems and prevent more species from becoming extinct. The O'ahu Forest Refuge supports at least 17 species of endangered plants, 4 species of endangered tree snails, and 1 species of endangered bird, along with other rare native flora and fauna. At least nine native natural communities have been identified in the area, including lowland mesic forest types, rainforest communities, high-elevation cloud forest, and freshwater streams.

Directions:

This new refuge is currently closed to the public. The refuge office is located on Oahu's north shore in Haleiwa at 66-590 Kamehameha Highway. Office hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
