Wildlife Wednesdays

Wednesday Nights June through August
Wildlife Wednesday Tourists and locals alike love this tour!  Join us Wednesday evenings in June, July and August for an evening guided auto tour of the refuge backcountry. The tour begins at 7 p.m. and lasts approximately two hours. We’ll be on the lookout for a variety of wildlife while sharing Refuge history and management practices. 

Hitch a Ride

Please meet inside the Visitor Center to coordinate vehicles, pick up binoculars, and begin the tour. The Visitor Center reopens at 6:30 p.m. on tour days to accommodate guests. 


Space in refuge vehicles is available first come first served. Once the refuge vehicles are full radios are handed out to the public and they are welcomed to follow along in their personal vehicles. 

People wishing to drive their own vehicles who are joining the tour will be required to wash potential seed sources from their vehicles before being allowed to go behind closed gates.  You can help speed the process by visiting a car wash before you come to the refuge for the tour.  The refuge also has a site where vehicles can be washed down before the tour.  Simply ask at the front desk at the Visitor Center for assistance in this matter. This new procedure is meant to help stop the potential spread of invasive species.
