A series of passes covers the entrance and standard amenity fees charged for using federal recreational lands – including national wildlife refuges. Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge issues Senior and Access Passes at the refuge Visitor Center Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The Visitor Center is closed on all federal holidays.
Existing Golden Eagle Passports and National Parks Passes with an expiration date will be honored until they expire. Paper versions of the Golden Age or Golden Access Passports should be exchanged for the new Senior or Access passes. However, plastic Golden Age or Access passes are valid for the pass holder's lifetime and do not need to be exchanged.
The Senior and Access passes are good for the lifetime of the holder and make available (to the pass holder only) 50 percent discounts on some expanded amenity fees.
For the first time, hangtags are available for those who anticipate parking vehicles at unmanned facilities.
Please visit the National Wildlife Refuge System Web site for more information about passes.
