The Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge, consisting of barrier islands and coastal zones around Cedar Key, Florida, is a beautiful place. In just a short distance, you enter a world that seems to be isolated and reminds one of "Old Florida" the way it was back in the old days. The bird rookeries are busy now, and there are certain island that you must maintain a distance so as not to disturb nesting birds between now and June. I was privileged to go fishing here last Friday. We had a great day, and saw some awesome territory. Some photos are below.
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
