Today, the 2,276-acre refuge encompasses approximately 2,000 acres of mature hardwood forest, the largest freshwater marsh in Northern Virginia, and nearly six miles of shoreline.The refuge provides the eagles and hundreds of other birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and plants with a relatively remote area of upland forests and freshwater marshes extending into the Potomac River.
