Refuge Report

Where are we?!

refuge boundary 150x109

We are often asked about how someone could tell if they were on or off refuge property. All refuge property is clearly marked on the outside boundary with yellow paint hash marks and blue goose boundary signs. Some landowners adjacent to the refuge may mark their boundary with blue paint hash marks and no trespassing signs. Trespassing on posted or unmarked private property is a violation of Kentucky State law.
