Autumn Trees Standing in Water - Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge
“Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge lies just two miles south of the town of Sumner, Missouri. It is located near the confluence of the Grand and Missouri Rivers, and is bordered on the south by Yellow Creek.
The refuge was established in 1937 and consist of 10,795 acres of bottomland forest, grasslands, marshes, and managed moist soil wetlands. Following purchase of the land, the Civilian Conservation Corps began work on the refuge creating wetlands, constructing roads and buildings, and initiating the refuge farming program.”
