Located in the great plains of northeastern New Mexico, Maxwell National Wildlife Refuge is a 3,700-acre mix of playa lakes, wetlands, woodlots, shortgrass prairie and agricultural lands. Since its establishment in 1965 as a feeding and resting area for migratory birds, the Refuge has hosted many thousands of geese, swans, ducks and sandhill cranes, usually from September through March. Management of the area requires that sections of the Refuge be closed to the public during special periods of waterfowl use.
