There are over 500 kinds of animal life and 1,000 plant varieties, 15 of which are on the threatened or endangered list.

  • Be sure to bring lots of sunscreen, bug repellant, water, and any other items you will need. There is just the one gift shop and no restaurants on the refuge. Carrying your cell phone in case of an emergency is a good idea also.
  • Fall and winter are the best times to visit the refuge. Morning and evening are the best times of day. However, you are sure to see an abundance of wildlife at any time.
  • Wearing drab clothing, limiting talking on trails, and avoiding unnecessary noise will increase you chances of seeing wildlife.
  • Do not attempt to touch or feed wildlife. They are wild animals. not pets.
  • Be sure to check for shuttle launches or landings as the refuge closes for three days before a launch, as well as the day of a landing.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
