Many thanks to the almost 150 visitors who stopped by the Friends Booth to say hello and learn about the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys Refuges. We made a lot of new friends and renewed many old contacts over the course of two days of interaction with an enthusiastic festival crowd. In terms of numbers, we received $400 from sales of Friends merchandise and from donations. New members joined too. Special thanks to the volunteers who made the event possible by being there to set up and break down the booth, and to talk to all the visitors.
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.
