The sign in front of the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge faced the road making it easy to spot while driving. Next to the sign, and nearest to the entrance, was a smaller sign labeling parking for the disabled.

Parking to access the wildlife refuge was parallel to the road. There was room to park about half a dozen cars.

The only way down to the marsh itself was using this stairway. There was no wheelchair access to the marsh.

The marsh looking north. It was a short walk beyond the deck. People were allowed to walk out there. In fact, you can see a path worn through the tall grass.

The deck as seen from the marsh. It was hidden enough so that it could be used as a blind for watching birds.

The Marsh Looking South

The marsh as it appeared looking south across tall grass, littered with large driftwood trees. Wetlands, such as this, help protect the land beyond from flooding.
