"Baskett Slough NWR, Oregon"
Baskett Slough NWR:    The nearly 2,500-acre Baskett Slough National Wildlife Refuge was created to provide wintering habitat for the Dusky Canada Goose. Unlike most other Canada Geese, Duskies have limited summer and winter ranges. They nest on Alaska's Copper River Delta and winter almost exclusively in the Willamette Valley. Baskett Slough NWR was created in 1985 and was named after George J. Baskett who took out a Donation Land Claim near the slough in October 1850. Baskett Slough NWR lies approximately 15 miles north of another Refuge, the Ankeny NWR.
