See the Fish Springs website for more information.
Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1959. It covers 17,992 acres with a 10,000 acre marsh system. Water is supplied by 5 major springs and several lesser springs and seeps.
Fish Springs provides vital habitat for migrating wetland birds that stop to rest and replenish energy stores before moving on. Many of those species remain to nest and raise their young. Generally, mid April and late September coincide with the peak of the annual spring and fall migrations.
The refuge also serves as a great resource for scientific research to many universities, government agencies and individuals.
The public is invited to enjoy the refuge, which is open 365 days a year for self guided tours on our 11 mile auto route. This route is designed to give you the best exposure to the largest amount and variety of birds. Interpretive signs are provided along this route to enhance your understanding of refuge wildlife and management practices. Also feel free to travel other roads that are open to the public.
Information is available at a visitor contact station located at the main entrance. While you are there please take a moment and sign the visitor log.
The Refuge includes the Thomas Ranch Watchable Wildlife Viewing Area. Here you can relax under the trees, enjoy your lunch and watch songbirds.
Drinking water and a 24-hour fully accessible restroom are located at the refuge headquarters. Tours can usually be arranged for organized groups if refuge staff is contacted ahead of time.
