Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge welcomes you, your friends, family and neighbors.
We are Growing!

The visitor Center is now open Thursdays through Saturdays 9 am to 4 pm.

Currently, the west side of Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is closed to the public due to construction and habitat restoration. We hope to re-open the west side in fall, or winter of 2022.

      About Us

      Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge welcomes you, your friends, family and neighbors. 

      What We Do

      The National Wildlife Refuge System is a series of lands and waters owned and managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Wildlife conservation is at the heart of the refuge system. It drives everything we do from the purpose a refuge is established, to the recreational activities offered there, to the resource management tools we use. Selecting the right tools helps us ensure the survival of local plants and animals and helps fulfill the purpose of the refuge.
