Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge
Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) was established in 1963 to provide habitat for migratory birds and to provide for suitable wildlife-dependent recreation. The Green River runs through the heart of the 13,455-acre Refuge, providing the life blood for the wetlands and cottonwood forests.
Browns Park NWR is extremely remote, 92 miles away from the nearest town with services. Be sure to bring extra water, food, and clothes. Cell phone coverage is not reliable away from town. Check your spare tire for proper air pressure.
