The National Wildlife Refuge Improvement Act requires us to consider these 6 wildlife-dependent public uses during our planning process. (Wildlife Observation, Wildlife Photography, Hunting, Fishing, Environmental Education, and Interpretation). For a use to be approved on a NWR it must be determined to be both appropriate and compatible with the establishing purposes of the refuge. Tell us your ideas for balancing the wildlife management needs and recreational opportunities.
We use the "Like it" feature to facilitate more public participation only. We DO NOT use the "Like it" feature as some type of voting mechanism; we do not use the "Like it" feature to build consensus on any idea or issue pertaining to the management of the refuge.
