The Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1964 through community support and in cooperation with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is located on both banks of the Chattahoochee River in southeast Alabama and southwest Georgia. Named after the city of Eufaula, the refuge offers a variety of wetland and upland habitats for diverse fauna. A prominent feature of the abundant wetlands is Lake Eufaula (Walter F. George Reservoir) and several feeder streams. The refuge's primary purpose is to provide habitat for wintering waterfowl, other migratory birds and resident species; to provide habitat and protection for endangered or threatened species; and to provide wildlife oriented recreational opportunities for the public. The "Blue Goose" symbolizes the national system of refuges established for the conservation and management of fish, wildlife and plants in the United States for the benefit of present and future generations. Eufaula Refuge is one of 550 refuges nationwide. Each one provides a unique piece of a puzzle, securing the necessary habitats needed to protect plants, animals and provide outdoor recreation.

Key Cave Natioonal Wildlife Refuge Hunting

Decatur, AL 35603 (154.151 miles)

Key Cave NWR, located about 5 miles southwest of Florence, Alabama, was established in 1997 to ensure the biological integrity of Key Cave. Key Cave has been designated as critical habitat for the endangered Alabama cavefish (Speoplatyrhinus poulsoni) and as a priority one maternity cave for the endangered gray bat (Myotis grisescens). The cave is on the northern shore of Pickwick Lake in a limestone karst area that contains numerous sinkholes and several underground cave systems. The area’s sinkholes are an integral component of groundwater recharge to the cave. The area directly north of Key Cave was identified as a potential high hazard risk area for groundwater recharge and this is where the 1,060-acre Refuge was established.
