Please Note: This list/calendar is maintained by volunteers, so some events may not be listed on this calendar, and/or some event may be canceled due to circumstances beyond our control. If you have questions about whether an event is actually going to be held, due to weather conditions, etc., it is always a good idea to call the Visitor Center (318-387-1114) to confirm. (But, hey, in the very unlikely event that you should ever come out to the refuge for a scheduled event, but find that the event has been cancelled - please do enjoy your time in nature anyway! The wildlife and beauty are always here.)
