Wildlife Drive Reopens
The Wildlife Drive at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge reopens to the public on Saturday, April 20, 2013. The drive, and the Refuge, will be open from Sunrise to Sunset every day. All trails are also open starting Saturday.
Migratory season is here. The Ospreys have returned. There is a camera monitoring on one nest, and is active 24 hours. To see the activity in this nest, click on the “Osprey Camera” button.
The Visitor Information Center and the Friends Nature Store continue to be open from 10 AM to 3 PM weekdays, and from 9 AM to 4 PM on weekends. Come on over and check out the new interactive displays in the Gallery. There are many interesting items available for purchase in the Nature Store. Coming soon are our own “At the Refuge” tee shirts.
To view the damage and repair work, click on the Photo Gallery tab.
A full recovery is a long way off and we need your help now to insure we will be able to enjoy all our refuge sites someday. Funding for debris removal and dike repair could come from President Obama's Request for Supplemental Funding for the National Wildlife Refuge System and you can help insure we get those funds.
