Current Programs and Calendar of Events
A receptionist is on duty at the Visitor Center to offer tips on wildlife viewing, wildlife refuge information and points of interest. A self-guided tour, featuring sculpted re-creations of wildlife and settings and interactive stations, simulates a journey through the nation's most far-reaching wildlife refuge. We also feature an award-winning movie "Journey of the Tiglax," a nature-oriented bookstore, and outdoor trails to Bishop's Beach through adjoining wetlands.
Plan Ahead & Enjoy the Trails
Many of our interpretive programs are outdoor experiences. Plan ahead to enjoy the trails by bringing appropriate gear for your visit: sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, clothing for windy or rainy conditions and appropriate shoes or boots for exploring the beach. Moose sightings are a special treat when walking the trail, but do require caution. If you see a moose, take a photo with a long lens, back up, and wait for the moose to move on.
