Snag Boat Bend Unit is restricting the access to humans but birds and geese are more than welcome
The Snag Boat Bend Unit of the William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge Complex is temporarily closed due to flooding from recent heavy snows.
Finley Refuge is currently open. However, Refuge staff are monitoring road conditions for flooding as snow continues to melt over the next few days. Ground saturation from water and snow along Refuge trails may cause erosion and weaken tree roots. Visitors are advised to remain alert to potentially hazardous situations.
For more information on the Refuges, please contact the Willamette Valley National Wildlife Refuge Complex Headquarters at (541) 757-7236. Office hours are Monday thru Friday 8:00am - 4:30pm.
