Currently we are in Phase 1 of re-opening with some staff returning to limited field and maintenance work. The lands and waters of the refuge are open for public enjoyment, however offices and visitor centers will remain closed until further notice. We anticipate re-opening the visitor center during Phase 3, on a timeline that will depend on state and local conditions and may move forward or backward in phases to adapt to current conditions.

We are committed to increasing access to refuge facilities as quickly as possible when risks to the health and safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers can be safely mitigated. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again in-person as soon as it’s safe to do so and wish everyone healthy and enjoyable adventures outdoors!
