The Washington Department of Transportation has estimated that this facility may be used by as many as 100,000 visitors annually, providing the Service with one of the best outreach opportunities in the Pacific Northwest. The refuge also serves as the operational headquarters for the 329acre Pierce National Wildlife Refuge.
