The good news is that this is beginning to come to an end. The refuge staff has advised that they plan to allow public activities such as led hikes, nature education, and volunteer workdays once the Indiana Department of Health COVID-19 Dashboard and Map shows Gibson and Pike counties in the Blue (lowest concern) Advisory Level. As of March 14, 2022 Gibson County was shown at the Yellow Level and Pike County was shown at the Blue Level. The Friends of Patoka River NWR are beginning to make plans for activities to begin this Spring and we hope to be able to see you in person! Stay tuned for updates.
Meanwhile, Patoka River National Wildlife Refuge remains open to individuals to visit and enjoy all that it has to offer.
