Shiawassee National Wildlife Refuge includes a large area of wetlands and forests within the agricultural and urban landscape of Michigan's Saginaw County. Established in 1953, the Refuge now includes 9,226 acres and is recognized as globally significant to migratory waterfowl. It was authorized to be a sanctuary for migratory birds, fish and wildlife-oriented recreation, protection of natural resources, and the conservation of endangered and threatened species. The Michigan WMD consists of two waterfowl production areas, which are cooperatively managed with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

The Draft Comprehensive Conservation Plan emphasizes the habitat needs of fish and wildlife and expanded opportunities for wildlife-dependent recreation.
