Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge

Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), located 7 miles east of Malta, Montana, was established in 1936 to provide habitat for migrating, nesting, and feeding birds. More than 260 species of birds, 26 species of mammals, and a variety of reptiles, amphibians, and fish can be seen at the Refuge.

Bowdoin NWR is located about 7 miles east of Malta, Montana. From U.S. Highway 2 on the east edge of Malta, turn southeast onto old County Highway 2 at the brown and white Refuge sign. Follow the paved road to the two stone pillars marking the entrance road to the Refuge headquarters.

Traveling from the east on U.S. Highway 2, turn south (left) at the brown and white Refuge sign located approximately 14 miles west of the Sleeping Buffalo Hot Springs Resort turn-off. Follow the gravel road to the 4-way intersection and turn left again onto the paved road (Old County Highway 2). This will take you to the Refuge entrance.
