Refuges close due to shutdown

Posted on Tue, Oct 1, 2013 at 11:29 AM

Due to the shutdown of much of the federal government beginning today, the Savannah Coastal Refuges (Pinckney Island, Savannah, Tybee Island, Wassaw, Harris Neck, Blackbeard Island and Wolf Island) will be closed to the public.

"While a lapse in appropriations remains in effect, public access to Service properties will be prohibited and fish and wildlife management activities and public programs will be cancelled," says a spokesperson.

"This includes the archery hunt on Savannah NWR that begins on October 1. Once the shutdown has ended and the refuges re-open, all activities including hunting will resume as normal."

A full schedule of refuge hunts, including other refuges within the Complex, can be found here.

Additional information is available at DOI.gov/shutdown and oneINTERIOR.gov, as well as at OPM.gov, which will contain information about the government’s operating status on Tuesday, October 1, and the days following.
