Current Refuge Conditions 2021

Hawk in Flight

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is following federal, state, and local public health authority guidance to implement a phased approach to increase public access to Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. Based on this guidance and in accordance with the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge is beginning to safely increase access.

Access to the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge is as follows:

Open: The main parking lot and portable restrooms. The year round trail continues to be open during daylight hours.

Closed: The visitor center, photography blind, office and facility restrooms. The seasonal trail is closed until May 2022. 

We are excited to welcome you back but do ask that you follow current CDC safe practices by maintaining a safe distance between yourself and other groups; washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and most importantly, staying home if you feel sick. Additionally, in following the new state guidelines, when our buildings do reopen masks will need to be worn indoors. Staff are working to maintain clean, safe, and healthy facilities in accordance with federal, state and local guidance.

Please visit this site for updates. We look forward to seeing you soon!
