The 19,000 acre Valentine Wildlife Refuge is located in Nebraska, USA and is home to the tall grass and mid grass prairie. The sand dunes found in the region are believed to be the effects of the Pinedale glaciations, also known as the last ice age. When the glaciers finally retreated, the sand dunes were exposed, and eventually, tall grasses grew and thrived. Today, the Valentine Wildlife Refuge is being managed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, which formed the Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge Complex together with Fort Niobrara and the John and Louise Seier National Wildlife Refuges.
In the refuge are found a number of lakes and ponds. Some of the wildlife to be spotted is 260 species of birds, white-tailed deer, mule deer, muskrats, and beavers.
