Tour Schedule - Public Interpretive Programs
Notice - all tours and hikes are currently on hold due to the government shutdown. A new 2019 schedule will be posted as soon as activities resume.
These programs are intended for individuals and family groups. Reservations are limited to one family (up to six individuals) per telephone call. Children must be at least eight years old. Restrooms are not available on the tours. Wheelchair access is available if requested at time of reservation.
Refuge tours are dependent upon wildlife and weather conditions. They may be cancelled or modified if adverse conditions exist. Program dates are tentative as of 11/13. Reservations are required.
Reservations will be retained until 10 minutes before each program. After that time, stand-bys will be accepted. If the bus seating is filled after accepting stand-bys, late arrivals with reservations will not be able to participate in the program.
