REFUGE IMPACT.  According to the Secretary of the Interior, more than 53.6 million people visited national wildlife refuges in 2017, generating approximately $3.2 billion in nearby local communities.  The report comes on the heels of recent efforts to expand hunting, fishing and recreational opportunities on the nation’s system of refuges.
