Hi everyone,

A big thank you to those of you who got out and did the Winter Bird Count this year. We look forward to returning to our regular format in 2022.

As always, you are welcome to continue to visit and enjoy the Refuge during the winter. There are several gates which will close on December 31st, however you can walk, ski or snowshoe behind the gates. The bathrooms are still closed, so plan your visit accordingly. We know this is not the ideal situation but it is what we can do now with our limited staffing.
We have been told that time spent outdoors is relatively safe for not contracting the virus. However, if you do find yourself in an area with others, please put your mask on or find a way to distance from them.
Thanks for your understanding and hopefully we will see positive changes in 2021.

Our staff is available by phone at 509-684-8384 Monday – Friday from 7:30am to 4:00pm.

Thank you for visiting!
