Corliss Interp 512x383Visiting the Refuge to explore on one's own is great, but why not develop a closer relationship to the wildlife and habitats of the Nisqually River estuary? On weekends during the warmer months (April through September), the Refuge offers Interpretive Programs - guided walks and educational talks that are sure to enhance understanding and appreciation of this amazing resource.

Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge offers a variety of public programs from April through September. Programs include guided nature, bird, and history walks.

Unless otherwise indicated, all programs leave from the Visitor Center.  Walking trails are beginner level, smooth with no elevation.  Wear comfortable shoes.  Feel free to bring binoculars or check them out from the Visitor Center.  Programs are open to the public and free of charge, but the $3 Refuge entrance fee still applies.  Programs will last anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on the presenter and topic.  Remember, pets are not allowed at the Refuge, and biking and running are prohibited.  If you have any questions, call the Refuge at (360)753-9467.
