After following the first Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition (One thousand miles in one hundred days), Ranger Pam Darty says she was thrilled to be invited to ride bikes with these conservation heroes on a January Wednesday in 44 degree weather. All of them being Florida natives, they nearly froze. The next day, Pam met them on the Dixie Mainline and drove them for a picturesque walk along Shired island. She has been a huge fan of Carlton Ward Jr's for a long time; she greatly enjoyed finally meeting him. Later in the day, Friends members and others hosted a bar-b-q reception in Suwannee for the expedition members.
