Great Bay Walkabout Saturday
Saturday, October 16th; 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
This is a special event to celebrate the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s National Wildlife Refuge Week!

Please be aware that GBNWR hosts a lottery-based fall archery deer & turkey hunt in certain portions of the Refuge. We are advising that attendees wear blaze orange or bright colors. Hunters are aware of our events, but please observe best practices when in NH woods in the fall.

Great Bay National Wildlife Refuge encompasses over 1100 acres of beautiful New Hampshire forests, fields, and shoreline.

On this Saturday in October, visitors will be welcome to explore, on foot, certain areas of the refuge that are normally closed to the public. Enjoy expansive views of Great Bay from Woodman Point. (Note: Pedestrian access only into the normally closed areas of the refuge. Please no bikes and no pets.)

NO preregistration for this event; simply show up! Here are directions to the refuge:
