Restricted Access


Access Update: Wednesday 07/07/20:

We are eager to welcome you back to the refuge for safe recreation and wildlife viewing. Things are not yet back to normal. While refuge units are open for recreation, units may be subject to sudden access restrictions with little to no advance notice. Be aware that public building operations are temporarily suspended – including visitor centers, nature stores, and flush toilet bathrooms. Please plan ahead and come prepared.  

We are committed to doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, and you our friends and neighbors. Therefore, planned refuge events and programs may not take place as scheduled.

Follow all CDC, State, and County guidelines and please maintain social distancing. Recreate responsibly by staying physically distanced, keep group sizes small, and take trash home with you.

 We thank you for your cooperation and will provide updates as they become available. For more information, contact us at 409/267-3337
