Donna Thalacker led a small group - just Kit Lane and Debbie Dye - on her last Refuge walk before she heads north. We walked the new "Tram" trail, about 2 1/2 miles, and saw many birds, plants, flowers, butterflies and two small snakes. We got a good look at a Northern Parula and some blooming orchids that Donna had spotted last time she was here. The bugs weren't a problem until we were discovered by some really huge, biting bug. If they were deer flies, they were deer flies on steroids!
The Refuge is open daily from dawn to dusk.
Visitors are welcome to walk or bicycle around yellow Refuge gates.
