The refuge does not have an evironmental educator on its staff. However, our partnership with refuge volunteers and the New Jersey Audubon Society do make some educational opportunities available. Please check the refuge website for more information.
The refuge provides fishing opportunities on the Wallkill River: Oil City Road in Pine Island, N.Y.; Bassetts Bridge (Rt.642) in Wantage; and in Vernon via the Dagmar Dale Trail. Anglers may also fish from rowboats or canoes on the river.
The Wallkill River is a warm-water fishery where it flows through the refuge. Smallmouth and largemouth bass, pickerel, catfish, and sunfish are the most commonly caught fish.
The refuge is open for white-tailed deer, American turkey, migratory bird, and resident Canada goose hunting. Permits are required from the refuge. Visit the refuge website to download hunt permits.
The Wood Duck Nature Trail is a 1.5-mile flat trail located on a former railroad bed. A brochure describing the trail has been produced, and interpretive signs are located along its length.
The refuge provides opportunities to observe wildlife on foot or by canoe.
There is no refuge entrance fee. There is a hunting permit application fee.
Hunt permit application fees are $10 per season (deer, turkey, and/or migratory bird). Golden Age and Golden Access Passport holders only pay $5.
