The Charles H. Rogers Wildlife Refuge is located on West Drive off Alexander Street. The 45-acre parcel can be accessed by driving down West Road, staying left past the wooden Charles H. Rogers Wildlife Refuge sign, until you reach a brown informational kiosk and parking to the right.

The Refuge exists along the Stony Brook and its trails connect to Institute Woods, part of the Institute for Advanced Study. Its combined marsh and forest provides critical local nesting habitat for more than 90 species of birds.

The property is owned and operated by NJ American water, while Friends of Rogers Refuge and the Municipality of Princeton manage public recreation and habitat.
