No matter what leads you to visit a national wildlife refuge — curiosity, a bird festival or just a wish to unwind — you are in for a treat.
To help you have a great experience, we've updated our "Plan Your Visit" pages, highlighting lots of ideas under “Things to Do” and “Things to See.” Want to fish, paddle, take a walk in nature? Let us point the way. Eager to see a seasonal spectacle, like horseshoe crabs coming ashore by the thousands in spring? Or iconic animals such as bison and elk? We’ll tell you where.
We also share travel tips, and tell you all you need to know about passes and permits.
See you at the refuge! See our story.
