The Mourning Dove is an elegant, slender-tailed bird that can be easily identified by its hollow-sounding “coo-OO-oo” call. It is the most abundant and widespread bird species in North America, and is also the most frequently hunted species in North America.Hunters and Birdwatchers can learn more about mourning doves here!
Please obey all posted signs, rules, and regulations. The refuge is open from dawn until dusk. Don't forget to look around, Pokemon are not the only creatures you'll see. You gotta catch 'em all, but please do so safely. When you find a Pokemon, take a picture and post it on social media using #clarksrivernwrGO
We are often asked about how someone could tell if they were on or off refuge property. All refuge property is clearly marked on the outside boundary with yellow paint hash marks and blue goose boundary signs. Some landowners adjacent to the refuge may mark their boundary with blue paint hash marks and no trespassing signs. Trespassing on posted or unmarked private property is a violation of Kentucky State law.Visit our Maps Page before you visit the Refuge!
