Know Before You Go

The refuge is open 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset. Late October through early April offer the best times to view waterfowl on the refuges. The forests come alive in spring with the arrival of warblers and other migratory songbirds, while red fox, wild turkey and white-tailed deer may greet you year-round.
