Renowned worldwide, Florida nature photographer Clyde Butcher will be visiting the Cedar Key and the Big Bend Region in August to photograph. Friends of Refuges will be helping to show him around. Even if you wouldn't jump at the chance to take him out into the swamp in mosquito season, you can help. Tell us your favorite spots -- either on land or water -- between Waccasassa and Steinhatchee. If you have pictures to share, even better. We will compile a list for Mr. Butcher to help him plan his itinerary. Please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org (attention: Maria Sgambati). Stay tuned: discussions are underway about a possible Clyde Butcher exhibit and/or talk in Cedar Key in 2018.
