Law Enforcement

Wood Ducks

Law enforcement is an essential component to sound resource management. Visitors to Great River National Wildlife Refuge can expect to see Federal Wildlife Officers (FWOs) regularly patrolling Refuge lands to provide visitor and resource protection. Our FWOs routinely use trucks, ATVs, boats and foot patrol to access and monitor all areas within the refuge. FWOs also regularly assist Missouri Conservation Agents in other resource protection activities.

Help protect your natural resources! To report an emergency or ongoing violation call 911. For violations that are not in progress or for general law enforcement questions contact FWO Max Carr at 573-847-2333, extension 6. Remember that you are the best protector of our Resources by being a good steward yourself and by reporting violators!
