The McKinney National Wildlife Refuge is vital to protecting and preserving the habitats, like Duck Island, that our wildlife, including many endangered species, need to survive.
**Reminder: Duck Island as well as Menunketesuck Island are closed to the public. There are many bird species that call the islands their homes and we need to be respectful of the Birds and their young**
