Patuxent Research Refuge Press Release-Season Ends Early for Patuxent Tram Tours

Season Ends Early for Patuxent Tram Tours

The Friends of Patuxent has historically offered wildlife conservation tram tours at the National Wildlife Visitor Center until approximately mid-November each year. The schedule must change this year, however, as a new federal policy requires the transfer of tram operation and management to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

This transition requires that tram service be discontinued starting on October 1, 2014. The only exceptions are that the nine-passenger shuttle will be operating for the October 18th Patuxent Wildlife Festival and the November 15th Friends of Patuxent Wildlife Holiday Bazaar. Patuxent Research Refuge hopes to continue the wildlife conservation tram tours upon the arrival of a new energy-efficient tram in Spring 2015.

Refuge staff apologize for any inconvenience, but encourage you to visit Patuxent Research Refuge to participate in the many other wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities offered throughout the year. In Spring 2015, visit us again to enjoy the return of the ever-popular and enjoyable wildlife conservation tram tour!

The National Wildlife Visitor Center is located off of Powder Mill Road, between the Baltimore-Washington

Parkway and Route 197, south of Laurel, Md. Please visit our website at http://www.fws.gov/refuge/Patuxent
