Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge: Brooksville, Mississippi

 

View of Exhibits


Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge is located in three counties: Noxubee, Oktibbeha, and Winston counties in Mississippi.  It was originally created from lands obtained through the 1930’s Resettlement Administration.  With additional land acquisitions through the years, Noxubee now consists of 48,000 acres.  Approximately 44,500 acres of the refuse is bottom land and upland forest.  These forest lands are occupied by a variety of game species, including quail, deer, and turkey.  The endangered red - cockaded woodpecker relies on the Refuge for its existence in east central Mississippi.  In addition, many neotropic bird species inhabit the Noxubee Refuge forest.  Four green-tree reservoirs (GTR’s), two major lakes (Bluff - 800 acres and Loakfoma - 400 acres), 16 small impoundments, and assorted wetland areas provide important habitat for wood storks, American alligators, bald eagles, and wintering waterfowl.
