Bison Keep It Cool During The Government Shutdown

Public access to the Wildlife Refuge, six miles north of Park Hill, remained open during the monthlong federal government shutdown, although the Refuge visitor center was closed. The Refuge website explained that “where public access to refuge lands does not require the presence of a federal employee or contractor, activities on refuge lands will be allowed to continue on the same terms as before the appropriations lapse.” But the website noted that “[a]ny entry onto Refuge System property during this period of federal government shutdown is at the visitor’s sole risk.” Photo by Reid Neureiter
