Rules and Regulations

Brochures 512 x 320

Please stop by the office headquarters to pick up informational brochures and ask any questions you may have about visiting our refuge.


There are lots of fun, interesting, and educational things you can do on the refuge.  Keep in mind, if an activity is not wildlife related and doesn’t help in the protection or understanding of wildlife or their habitat, there are probably refuge rules governing this activity.  Please check with the refuge management before participating in an activity that could harm the environment or yourself.  There are plenty of activities on Upper Souris NWR for you to enjoy.  Be safe and have fun!
