Trail and Wildlife Refuge Closures Due to Storm

Recent storms have caused trail damage at some of our wildlife refuges. Please see below for updates on affected locations, and check back here for updates.

Here's How You Can Help

Please consider lending a helping hand in the coming days by:

  • Reporting Audubon trail issues you come across. Push small fallen branches off the trails when visiting. Please be careful on the trails and adhere to closures!
  • Donate to support repairs on our wildlife refuge trails.
  • Contact your elected officials: The increasing intensity and frequency of storms is a direct result of climate change caused by rampant emissions. Tell your elected officials that you support climate action and the implementation of better stormwater management in your community. Find your officials here!
