Our national wildlife refuges face many issues.
The main entrance road often floods
in spring, making access difficult
Invasive species such as leafy spurge, purple loosestife and black locust put heavy pressure on native plants.
The Refuge is home to a globally important and endangered ecosystem, the oak savannah, so pressure from invasive species is even more significant.
School groups seeking environmental education are turned away because staffing shortages.
Learn about these issues so that you can be an
informed supporter of the Refuge.
Let your Federal representatives know you value and support our Refuges.
