The visitor's center will be funded by partnership and federal service. BOCS and BONWR are collaborating on the plans for the center's design and uses. It is our hope that it will provide ease of access to the Refuge, adequate parking, interpretive and educational space, conference area, and a gift shop/bookstore. Initial steps have been taken to complete this long term goal.
The U.S. Army and the USFWS have identified 151 acres of land cleared of UXO near the junction of US 421 and Old Michigan Road to build a visitor center.
Currently, BOCS is looking for members to join a committee that will initiate and oversee the actions and goals of building a visitor center. If you are interested in joining, please contact the refuge.
Stay tuned to this section of our website as this very exciting and ambitious project develops, and the dream of a visitor's center is fulfilled.
