Up in the spectacular scenery surrounding the Selkirk Mountains in the United States and Canada, the International Selkirk Loop is home to two National Wildlife Refuges with very diverse wildlife. View moose, elk, deer, bear, otter, bald eagles, Canada geese, mallards, pintails, and teal in the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge. There is a 4.5-mile auto tour route through the refuge and walking trails. Birdwatchers will love Little Pend Oreille National Wildlife Refuge with 206 species of birds, 58 mammal, 8 reptile, and 6 amphibian species on 40,200 acres of mountainous forest. Enjoy the new 11-mile auto tour route with interpretive panels along the route providing information on wildlife, habitats, management practices and historical uses of the area. You can borrow a day pack, binoculars and bird guide from the Refuge Headquarters for free.
