Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge consists of Hog Island, Plum Island and Pilot Island. The islands are located in Lake Michigan, near Washington Island, off the tip of Wisconsin's Door County Peninsula.
The refuge is managed by staff at the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge Complex in Mayville, WI. Contact (920)387-2658 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge islands are closed to the public. Hog and Pilot Islands are closed to the public to reduce disturbance to nesting birds. Plum Island is currently closed to the public except for special events but after recent completion of a Comprehensive Conservation Plan, is planned to open to the public for day use (hiking, wildlife observation, photography) between Memorial Day and Labor Day in 2014. Hog and Pilot Islands will remain closed.
