Law Enforcement

Nash Island sign

Protecting resources and people on our refuges is the fundamental responsibility of refuge officers. The mission of the Refuge Law Enforcement Program is to support the administration of the National Wildlife Refuge System through the management and protection of natural, historic and cultural resources, property, and people on lands and waters of our national wildlife refuges.

The Refuge belongs to you! We encourage you to use it. Because it is a shared resource, laws and regulations are necessary to ensure that each person’s experience is protected. Make sure you know what is allowable before you visit. We are happy to answer any questions (207) 594-0600.
