Public Access at James River National Wildlife Refuge
To visit James River NWR, reservations are required seventy-two (72) hours in advance of the proposed visit. Requests can be made by contacting Cyrus Brame, Outdoor Recreation Planner, at (804) 829-9020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Only non-consumptive activities are allowed in the refuge.
The refuge tries to accommodate all requests fitting these criteria. However, if the date of your request conflicts with a management activity (prescribed burn, biological survey, etc.); an alternate date will be proposed. Once access is approved, the requesting group or individual is provided written permission for the date and time of the visit. A permit is provided for placement on the dashboard of the requesting party’s vehicle. Additionally, a map, highlighting designated trails and parking details, will be sent.
