“Exactly hunting and fishing”
Cokeville Meadows National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), located south of Cokeville, Wyoming, is centered on a 20-mile stretch of the Bear River and its associated wetlands and uplands. The Refuge was established in 1993. Wetlands within the acquisition area provide excellent habitat for a variety of migratory and resident wildlife species. The Refuge supports one of the highest densities of nesting waterfowl in Wyoming, provides nesting habitat to colony nesting bird species, has excellent potential for reintroduction of trumpeter swans, and provides habitat for resident species, including greater sage grouse, mule deer, elk, and pronghorn. Because it was only recently established, Cokeville Meadows NWR is not open to public use. However, over the next several years, Refuge staff will begin public planning processes that may open Refuge lands to a variety of public uses such as wildlife viewing, interpretation, fishing, hunting, environmental education, and photography. Some of these activities may be contingent on acquisition of additional lands so the public has clear boundaries on which to recreate without infringing on adjacent private lands.
