As part of an expansion of our advocacy mission, former Friends president, Peg Hall, has posted an essay telling why she believes the Refuges are at risk of losing their ability to protect the wilderness and wildlife that are the foundation of our natural-resource based economy and our cherished way of life.
The Refuge is open daily from dawn to dusk.
Due to coronavirus concerns, the headquarters building is closed to visitors. However, staff are working as usual and the Refuge is open for appropriate recreational uses including boating, hiking, fishing, biking, and birding.
The Refuge Manager Andrew Gude can be reached by text or phone at 703.622.3896.
