Service biologists reviewed the area and were impressed with the remnant wildlife populations and educational potential of the site. The biologists recommended that the site and adjacent open space be included in the Regional Wetland Concept Plan and be acquired under authority of the Emergency Wetland Resource Act of 1986. By the end of 1991, Congress approved the funding required for the Service to begin acquisition and in May of 1992, Two Ponds was established as a National Wildlife Refuge.
