Don't forget about wildlife this holiday season! Turn an ordinary tree or shrub into a holiday feast for hungry critters in your yard. We even have ideas on what to do with your old Christmas tree once the holiday has passed. Learn more on our Christmas tree for wildlife how-to page.
We are often asked about how someone could tell if they were on or off refuge property. All refuge property is clearly marked on the outside boundary with yellow paint hash marks and blue goose boundary signs. Some landowners adjacent to the refuge may mark their boundary with blue paint hash marks and no trespassing signs. Trespassing on posted or unmarked private property is a violation of Kentucky State law.
