It was a great morning to be in the woods. I have yet to go for a walk in our Refuge without at least one unusual bird, butterfly, amphibian or flower to surprise me. Really, today’s alligator roar was quite the surprise and to be so close (yet safe) was a treat. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful place so close by to visit.
Our next nature walk will be even closer to Cedar Key. On Monday, April 18 at 9:30am, we will carpool to the Lukens Tract. It is a beautiful property owned mostly by the Suwannee River Management District and managed by the Lower Suwannee NWR. We will walk to the kayak launch pad from the road and observe butterflies and birds along the way. There are excellent opportunities to observe the salt marsh and wading birds along the walk. This will be a short walk along a well used track. If you would like to join me, we will car pool from Cedar Key Town Park parking lot at 9:30am. A special use permit is required and I will have one with me. I hope to see you then!
