Beginning in 2013, the refuge will offer an archery-only white-tailed deer hunt. A hunting map and regulations are provided with the refuge’s $20 hunting permit, which may be obtained through the Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge office.
Mammals, migratory and resident breeding birds may be seen at various times of the year among the refuge’s upland habitats. An observation blind is located along the trail to facilitate wildlife viewing.
The Friends of Cherry Valley host an annual Cherry Valley Day to celebrate the valley’s resources and rich history. Information on the refuge and its resources is available at the trailhead kiosk and on the web site.

Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge was established in part to protect the federally threatened bog turtle, which can be found in wetlands throughout the valley. Due to their listed status, refuge public use areas are located away from sensitive bog turtle habitats.
