Our first nature walk of the new year will be on Tuesday, 6 January at 9am. We will meet at the beginning of Cabin Road and walk about 2 miles or 2 hours along an old logging road. Ticks have been bad this year, but we should be able to avoid getting ticks on us by staying on the road. Cabin Road is on the right about 2 miles north of the south entrance to the Lower Suwannee NWR nature drive. Enter the nature drive off highway 347. For those coming from Cedar Key and who would like to car pool, meet me, Donna Thalacker, at the town park parking lot at 8:30am. For further information, call me at 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.
