As the metropolitan area of Virginia Beach began to grow drastically in the 1980s, preservation measures allowed for the refuge to more than double in size. During the fall/winter migration tundra swans, snow and Canada geese and ducks visit the refuge. In addition, loggerhead turtles, piping, plovers, the bald eagle and brown pelican also find refuge in the park. There are more than 8 miles of scenic trails and a visitor welcome center to assist with programming and educational opportunities.
