Contributor Race Jones Captures Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge
Shooting at 240 frames/second, Outdoor Project Contributor Race Jones captures one of Oregon's most impressive and important wildlife refuges.
Located just south of Salem, Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge is one of three refuges that make up the Willamette Valley National Wildlife Refuge Complex. Along with William L. Finley, and Baskett Slough (the other two refuges in the complex), Ankeny NWR was specifically created during the 1960s to restore and create dedicated wintering habitat for the dusky subspecies of Canada geese, which unlike other Canada geese have very limited ranges: the geese call the Copper River Delta in Alaska home during the summer, and they nest in Oregon's Willamette Valley during the winter months.
