During the construction process for our new Visitor Center, expect periodic inconveniences around headquarters, such as detours, reduced parking, noise, or even trail/road closures. Please plan accordingly.
5/11/2023 - A portion of the road entering the headquarters area has changed and parking is reduced. The visitor center, parking lot, and auto tour are still accessible. Please follow the directional signage and do not cross the orange traffic cones.
8/24/2023 - The entrance road to the refuge will be closed for repairs Thursday, August 24th, starting at 9 a.m. CST. We expect the repairs to take only a few hours, and then the entrance will be reopened.
Visiting national wildlife refuges is a great way to escape from everyday life and enjoy the serenity of nature.
