Our love of the Lower Suwannee & Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuges sometimes leads us to visit other refuges, if only to see how they compare. Our Past President Bob Hudson recently had the chance to visit the Alaska Maritime NWR. It has more shorebirds than the rest of the United States combined. It also has a spectacular Visitor Center. We need one of those!
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.
We have a monthly email News Brief
