  • Profile

    Emiquon Refuge was established in 1993 to restore and protect wetland habitats at the confluence of the Illinois and Spoon rivers and help fulfill international obligations contained in various migratory bird treaties and conventions. The first tract was purchased on December 29, 1993. The refuge has since grown to approximately 2,600 acres. In 2012, the refuge was designated as a “Ramsar Wetland of International Importance”.Listing Photo
