The Federal Government will be closed as current funding expired on Sept. 30.
Due to this event, Coastal Delaware National Wildlife Refuge Complex (Bombay Hook and Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuges) will be closed to the public. For programs experiencing a lapse in appropriated funding, only limited functions would continue, such as those necessary to respond to emergencies and to protect human life or property. While a lapse in appropriations remains in effect, public access to Service properties will be prohibited and fish and wildlife management activities and public programs will be cancelled. This includes the Youth Waterfowl Hunt scheduled for Oct. 5.
