The refuge sometimes opens restricted areas to the public in the form of a Wildlife Drive. This drive is open from sunrise to sunset on selected days. In November it will be open on the 26th and 27th from sunrise to sunset with the entrance gate closing at 5:30 pm. Research has shown that vehicle traffic is less intrusive to wildlife populations when compared to people interacting with nature outside of their vehicles, therefore pedestrian traffic including bicycles is prohibited on the Wildlife Drive. You may step out of your vehicle at designated pull-off locations to take a photo, use binoculars or set up a scope for wildlife observation.
