Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge 
Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge Lake Woodruff
NWR was established in 1964 to provide habitat for
migrating and wintering birds. The refuge contains
21,574 acres of freshwater marshes, 5,800 acres of
Cypress and mixed hardwood swamps, 2,400 acres of
uplands, and more than 1,000 acres of lakes, streams,
and canals. The bilogical diversity of the wetlands
provides nesting, overwintering and stopover habitat
during migration for neotropical songbirds, migratory
waterfowl, shorebirds, wading birds and raptors (215
bird species have been counted). 
Additionally, endangered and threatened species
benefit from the wetland habitat and management
practices of Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge.
The refuge contains over 5,000 acres of freshwater and
more than 50 miles of waterways, which are utilized by
the endangered Florida manatees as foraging, breeding
and calving areas. More than 23 miles are designated
as manatee protection zones. 

Other Federally endangered or threatened species which
are known to inhabit the refuge include the Eastern
indigo snake, American alligator, Wood stork, and the
Snail kite, which is a very specialized raptor feeding
only on Apple snails. Like the Limpkin, wading birds
occur on the refuge in unusually abundant numbers. 




Getting There . . . 
Lake Woodruff NWR is located 25 miles west of Daytona
Beach, Florida, and 7 miles north of DeLand on U.S.
Highway 17 near the community of DeLeon Springs, FL.
From Highway 17 in DeLeon Springs, turn west and go
one block to Grand Avenue. Turn south on Grand and go
approximately 3 blocks to Mud Lake Road. Refuge
directional signs are prominently displayed on both
U.S. 17 and Grand Ave. to direct the way to the refuge
and headquarters office. 



Hope this helps.
