The refuge offers self-guided hikes and staff or volunteer-led programs throughout the year. Programs include bird banding and bird/bat house building in June, in conjunction with celebrating World Migratory Bird Day, and the Christmas Bird Count in December.

Programs and events are free, geared for youth and adults and provide a range of opportunities that maximize first-hand experiences at the refuge.
