Facility Rules and Policies

Everything on the refuge is either a home or food for wildlife. Therefore, please remember… 

  • Please do not feed wildlife, it causes more harm than good
  • Do not leave bird seed along the trail—it attracts unwanted pests that can be harmful to birds & people.
  • ‘Take only pictures, leave only footprints.” 
  • Use official trails only.
  • Respect refuge boundary signs, closed areas and private property.
  • Keep pets at home. Their presence disturbs wildlife.
  • Keep a walking pace. Running triggers a flight response in wildlife.
  • Keep your distance—respect nesting wildlife.
  • Pack your garbage out with you.
  • Keep noise levels low. You will have a better chance at seeing or hearing wildlife!
