Columbia National Wildlife Refuge is a maze of coulees cut into the Columbia River basalts south and east of Moses Lake by Ice Age floods. Seepage from irrigation supplies year-round water to numerous lakes and marshes in the cliff-rimmed valleys along Crab Creek. Upland habitat is shrub-steppe, mostly sagebrush and bunch grass. Riparian habitats include extensive rushes and cattails along permanent water, various annuals in bands around ephemeral wet areas, weedy sometimes-flooded fields and shrubby habitats dominated by currant, wild rose and willow.
