Established in 1942, Parker River National Wildlife Refuge consists of 4,662 acres on the southern two-thirds of Plum Island, a barrier island on Massachusetts' Northeast coast.

What was once an unbroken expanse of wetlands and fishponds between the mouths of Waiehu and 'Iao Streams at Ka`ehu Bay in Maui is now mostly developed, with few places for the community to access the shoreline.

The North Coast is home to iconic California landscapes—redwood forests and stunning coastal bluffs. The land also supports salmon runs, the state's largest timber economy, and provides habitat for the Northern spotted owl.

Keewaydin Island is one of southwest Florida's largest un-bridged barrier islands, popular for its pristine beaches and excellent fishing.

On the northwestern fringe of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta sits the 5200-acre Liberty island whose demise by flooding, and ensuing accidental restoration, have yielded an unexpected, and encouraging, future for the Delta.
