Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge is observing its winter hours through Feb. 29. The Refuge Visitor Center will be closed Sundays as a cost-savings measure due to low visitation during winter months. Seasonal hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
In addition to being closed on Sundays, the Visitor Center will be closing at noon p.m. Dec. 24 and Dec. 31. The Visitor Center will also be closed all day Dec. 25 and Jan. 1.
Visitors are welcome to use all walking trails and drive the auto tour every day from dawn to dusk.
