Wildlife Observation
Castle Rock Refuge is closed to all public access because it is a very sensitive area for nesting seabirds during the spring and summer, and for roosting threatened Aleutian Canada geese in the winter/spring. The soils and vegetation are sensitive to damage by trampling; including damage to the burrows of burrow-nesting seabirds. Additionally, landing on this vertical sea rock is quite treacherous.
