The refuge offers public programs and guided walks throughout the year. Topics and offerings may vary; information on upcoming programs may be found on our event's page.

The refuge hosts two specific programs annually. The raptor program (held between Christmas and New Years) features rehabilitated birds that cannot be released back into the wild, and is followed by guided observation. The two-day free fishing event (held in June) coincides with the NJ’s free fishing days. One day is reserved for the general public and the other is for disabled veterans and their families. The timing of these events makes them very popular for families as well as any outdoor enthusiast.
