In June, the National Wildlife Refuge Association is sponsoring a Peer to Peer Conference for Friends groups. It will be held at Ding Darling NWR on Sanibel Island. Friends of the Lower Suwanee & Cedar Keys NWRs will be represented by two board members, Debbie Meeks and Mackenzie Russell. The presenter list is impressive, but we are expecting that the best part will be getting to know the leaders of other Friends groups from around the region. Leaders from St. Marks NWR and St. Vincent will attend as well as Dan Frisk, the Complex Manager for our refuges.
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.
