- Sequoyah NWR was established on the upper end of Robert S. Kerr Reservoir in Sequoyah, Muskogee and Haskell counties of eastern Oklahoma. It lies astride the junction of the Arkansas and Canadian rivers and is part of the McClellan-Kerr Navigation System which is open to ocean-going freight traffic.
Rich river-bottomland with numerous ponds and sloughs provides food and cover for waterfowl, other migratory birds and resident wildlife. Farm crops are grown on a cooperative basis and a portion is left in the fields for wildlife.
Wildlife usage varies with the season with fall, winter and spring providing the largest concentrations. Snow geese and mallards provide the most numerous populations for viewing and some limited hunting in season. Refuge programs contribute significantly to the recreational opportunities of eastern Oklahoma.
