Teller Wildlife Refuge includes over 1,300 acres of farmland and river bottom dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Montana's native riparian habitat. The Refuge, resting along five miles of the Bitterroot River, provides excellent habitat for many species. Whitetail deer, red foxes, coyotes, porcupines, marmots, beavers, otters, muskrats, and smaller mammals enjoy a landscape managed for biodiversity. Three species of trout, and a variety of the Refuge's other aquatic residents, such as native spotted frog and western long-toed salamander, occupy a respected niche in the overall Refuge management plan. Osprey, Canada Geese, Pileated Woodpeckers, a variety of waterfowl and raptors, and the passerines and songbirds who spend their summers in western Montana, live in a landscape responding favorably to practices designed to preserve and restore native habitat.
