Great Meadows pond

The primary mission of the refuge is to protect and enhance habitat for wildlife such as migratory birds, native plants, pollinators, endangered and threatened species, etc. Visitors are asked to help us do this by enjoying low-impact recreation - such as trail walking, wildlife viewing, photography - in a responsible way.

Please remember that the following are prohibited on the refuge:

  • walking dogs, riding horses or bringing other pets/animals
  • removing plants, animals or cultural artifacts
  • camping and fires
  • flying kites or similar objects
  • entering closed areas

Other regulations that help to protect habitat and keep our visitors safe are also in effect.
