Operations of the Joseph Skeen Visitor Center at Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge have been temporarily suspended, it was announced Tuesday.

“We are committed to doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, and you — our friends and neighbors,” a press release issued by the Fish and Wildlife Service stated. “Therefore, planned Refuge events and programs may not take place as scheduled.”

Refuge lands, including nature trails and outdoor recreational activities, remain open and accessible to the public. Visit Refuge information kiosks or brochure boxes for visitor information and maps.
