Interpretation allows visitors to make their own connections with our natural resources and is a popular activity on refuges.
At Clarks River NWR, most interpretation takes place at the Environmental Education and Recreation Area (located off of Hwy 408, east of Benton, KY) where there are interpretive signs, observation decks, trails, and an informational kiosk. At refuge headquarters a kiosk is located outside with maps, brochures, and a pegboard for current events or information.
The refuge is frequently asked to conduct interpretative programs for various schools, churches, clubs, and organizations. Several interpretive programs take place on the refuge in the form of bird walks, bird banding, hiking, fishing, and wildlife viewing. These programs are both requested by various groups and put on voluntarily by refuge staff as a special event for the community.
