Since the 1940's, recreational fees have been part of the refuge's strategy for providing quality public uses on the refuge. Hunters are already accustomed to supporting the refuge through the purchase of hunting permits. Of the nearly 200,000 visits to the refuge each year, about 70% of those visits are not associated with hunting or fishing. Participating in the refuge's recreational fee program by purchasing an entrance pass allows all visitors to contribute to the support of the refuge and its parking areas, paved roads, restrooms, signs, hiking trails, boardwalks, visitor center, and other visitor amenities.More Information
