Covid 19 Considerations


In keeping with guidance from the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and acting out of an abundance of caution, we are temporarily suspending operations at headquarters and the visitor center at Attwater Prairie Chicken National Wildlife Refuge. We are committed to doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to 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. The four-mile auto tour route and both walking trails remain open at this time. Please be aware there are no public bathrooms or drinking water available on the refuge, and no trash receptacles. We invite you to enjoy the auto tour and trails, but ask that you please pack out what you pack in. We apologize for any inconvenience and will provide updates as they become available.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
