The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is examining several public use activities at Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge under its mandatory 10-year re-evaluating time period.
Public use activities under evaluation are the collecting of wild foods such as mushrooms, wild asparagus and wild berries and the collection of deer antlers.
Currently, visitors are assigned to areas on the refuge where wild edible foods and shed deer antlers may be collected.
