COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – Three national wildlife refuges in the Denver metro area are closed to the public as of 9:30 a.m. this morning because conditions on the refuges are currently unsafe for visitors as a result of significant rainfall.

Staff of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Two Ponds and Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuges will remain on-site today and into this evening. When weather permits, the refuges will reopen to the public.
