Temporary Trail Closure

Birders Observation Deck Banner 512x219

The Chicken Creek Restoration Project is underway! The large woody debris has been delivered to the Refuge, and now the crews will begin their mobilization this week.


What Should You Expect?

Beginning August 15th, the Refuge will close a small portion of the seasonal trail. This is necessary as contractors will be moving soil to the lateral ditch area from where they begin excavating the lower portion of Chicken Creek.  They may need to access a small portion of the trail in order to move the soil around. Our goal is to keep all visitors and contractors safe during the construction period and this assists us in creating that environemnt. 

Trail closure maps are available at the Refuge and by clicking here.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to call the Refuge at 503-625-5944, or stop by the Visitors Center for more information.
