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

The refuge features several environmental education sites including two outdoor pavilions, a 2.7 acre pond with a dock and ramp, and a floating boardwalk in a freshwater marsh. 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.
