Rules and Regulations

Everything on the refuge is either a home or food for wildlife, so during your visit help protect wildlife by respecting the following regulations:

  • Open ½ hour before sunrise until ½ hour after sunset.
  • Refrain from leaving bird seed along the trail, as it attracts unwanted pests that can be harmful to birds and people;
  • Keep dogs and bikes off of refuges, their presence disturbs wildlife and poses a safety risk to other visitors;
  • Use official trails only;
  • Take only pictures, leave only footprints;
  • Respect refuge boundary signs, closed areas, and private property; and
  • Pack your garbage out with you.
