Near Galena in Alaska’s interior, Koyukuk is another little-known refuge that is a big haven for waterfowl and wildlife. As many as 100,000 ducks get their start in life each year in the Refuge’s sprawling wetlands. Other parts of the Refuge, which is the size of Connecticut, support some of the richest moose habitat in the state, with between 5 and 10 moose per square mile. A notable feature is the Nogabahara Sand Dunes, a sparsely vegetated wilderness area that covers about 16,000 acres.
