Please join me for a walk in the woods on Thursday morning, 25 February. This walk will be along an old logging road that will go through some pine uplands bordered by sand live oaks and then through a pretty swamp area with bald cypress. It will be a two mile walk. We will walk a mile out to a small pond, and then return along the same road. A small area is still under water, so you may get your feet a little wet (or balance on some wood across the stream). We will meet at the Cedar Key Town Park parking lot closest to the beach at 8:30 to car pool. If you have any questions, please call 352-543-6738.
Fire: More than 2,000 acres, mostly in Levy County, have been treated with prescribed burning since January.
Forests: On the Dixie County side, where weather has not been as good for prescribed burning, with the help of the Refuge's new Cat more than 70,000 legacy trees have been planted.
Need information: Refuge Manager Andrew Gude can be reached by text or phone at 703.622.3896.
The Refuge is open daily from dawn to dusk.
Visitors are welcome to walk or bicycle around yellow Refuge gates.
