As the only store located anywhere on the refuge, perhaps its most unique feature is that it is here at all.

For many years, there wasn't such a store here, but today refuge staff and volunteers help raise funds for various projects by operating this little store, which has been incorporated into the new refuge headquarters building.

The store is open 10 to 4 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

What to buy: This depends entirely on what you need!

+ Wildlife themed artworks and trinkets.

+ Endangered Species Chocolate: Choclate bars that raise funds for the cause of preserving wildlife.

+ Clothing

+ Educational books and materials for adults and children

And a variety of other things. The space is very limited, but there is enough here, but it is the only store like this anywhere in the area, let alone on the refuge.

Address: Finley Refuge Road, Monroe, Oregon 97456
