  • Public Comment


    The Federal planning process includes opportunities for public comment when an Environmental Assessment (EA) is developed. Comments and questions on a Refuge Road project will be accepted through January 31, 2014. Later this year, the refuge's Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) will be available for public comment.

  • Hunting


    The refuge promotes the voluntary use of non-lead ammunition, allowing hunters a unique opportunity to maintain support for hunting programs by demonstrating a commitment to safe, quality hunting practices that will benefit the long-term conservation of wildlife.
