Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge welcomes visitors to participate in a variety of wildlife-dependent activities. These activities were determined to be legitimate and appropriate uses of the Refuge System in 1997, when the President of the United States signed the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act into law.
Activities you can enjoy include wildlife observation, photography, hunting, fishing, environmental education, interpretation, hiking and paddling. Please note that not every unit offers all of these activities and some activities, like hunting, are only offered seasonally. See below for more information.
