Located approximately 500 yards from the Carty Unit parking lot stands a modern representation of a traditional dwelling of Native Americans who once inhabited the refuge. The Cathlapotle Plankhouse was constructed to resemble the houses described by Lewis and Clark when they visited the village known as Cathlapotle over 200 years ago.

Throughout the year, special events are held on the refuge, including guided tours and interpretive programs about the refuge, its wildlife, and management.
