Stillwater refuge does not require a permit or pass for entry or for wildlife observation, interpretation, environmental education or photography for personal use. There is no refuge entry fee. Hunters need to possess a
valid NV hunt license (resident or non) and any applicable tags or stamps (upland bird, state and federal duck stamps, big game permit).
Stillwater NWR may issue a Special Use
Permit (SUP), with or without a fee, for a specific activity that is not otherwise
permitted under general public use. There are three types of permits available for a variety of activities and refuge uses - General, Commercial and Research. By clicking on each, they can be downloaded, filled out and returned with the required information to the refuge office by mail, email or in person. If
you are am individual, or group and wish to conduct an activity that falls outside the general public uses allowed, please
contact the refuge Deputy Project Leader at
775/423-5128 ext. 235 for more information.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issues
permits under various wildlife laws and treaties at a number of offices
throughout the country. Permits enable the public to engage in legitimate
wildlife-related activities that would otherwise be prohibited by law. Service
permit programs ensure that such activities are carried out in a manner that
safeguards wildlife. Additionally, some permits promote conservation efforts by
authorizing scientific research, generating data, or allowing wildlife
management and rehabilitation activates to go forward.
