Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge is one of a handful of urban refuges nationwide and reflects the commitment of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop an informed and involved citizenry that will support fish and wildlife conservation through environmental education, scientific research, and recreation. In the heart of the Twin Cities metro area, the Resource Center at Minnesota Valley provides professional assistance and accessible workspace in a scenic bluff-top location.
The Resource Center collection reflects the management of Minnesota Valley NWR, the National Wildlife Refuge system, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service commitment to environmental education. Resources include books and periodicals, videos and photographs, displays and educational trunks, environmental education curriculum, and management documents. Services are offered at no charge to regional personnel and partners, educators, and the public during regular visitor hours.
