A diverse class of children look through microscopes on a table set up outside in a forest

The refuge features an environmental education loop trail off Sycamore Road. This area is not open to the general public and requires a Special Use Permit for access. Environmental education activities are primarily self-guided field trips exploring topics prepared by the teacher. Educators may arrange appointments with staff to tour the refuge and prepare for a field trip. Field study equipment is available for loan, including a small audio visual library. Interested educational groups or institutions are required to obtain a Special Use Permit to gain refuge access for their program. Fees may be waived for education programs.
