The refuge does not have a developed environmental education program. Staff have taken groups out on the refuge to teach them about the marsh ecosystem and the wildlife that inhabit the marsh. Organized tours and programs are available upon request. If you are interested, please contact the refuge office for more information.
In addition, the refuge has developed a 0.3-mile-long interpretive trail, located off the south side of North Carolina Highway 615. At the head of the trail is an interpretive kiosk. There are also interpretative kiosks at the wildlife observation platform on the north side of North Carolina Highway 615 and along Knotts Island Road on the refuge. The wildlife observation platform and kiosk are part of the Kuralt Trail system that connects the eleven national wildlife refuges in northeastern North Carolina and southeastern Virginia.
