Rules and Regulations

National Wildlife Refuges are places where wildlife comes first. Although people are welcome, activities are regulated and monitored to ensure that impacts are minimal to the plants  and animals that call the refuge "home." Below are just a few important rules and regulations for St. Catherine Creek National Wildlife Refuge. Click here for the full list.

 

  •  The refuge is open during daylight hours only, except during hunting season. 
  • Areas within refuge boundaries may be closed to public entry due to sensitive species or restoration activities. Be aware of signs indicating closed areas. Each year, between November 15 and March 31, the Swamp Lake is closed to all access. Portions of the Cloverdale Unit are closed to all entry at all times. 
  • All visitors must obtain an complete a Daily Visitor Use Reporting Card upon entering the refuge (located at each entrance in the visitor kiosk station) and display it on the dash so that name and address are visible from the outside. Before leaving the refuge, users must complete the reverse side of the card and deposit it in a drop box at one of the visitor kiosk stations.  
  • Searching for or removing any object of archeological or historical significance, including arrowheads, pottery, etc., as well as any natural materials such as plants, mushrooms, berries, and antler sheds is prohibited.
