While walking in the Refuge this week, I saw at least 7 different kinds of butterflies out and flitting about. It is time (past time!) to clean up and weed the Refuge Pollinator Garden to prepare it for spring blooms!! If you are able and willing, please meet at the Lower Suwannee NWR headquarters at 9am on Monday, Feb 22 for a couple hours of weeding and digging. Please wear long pants and long sleeved shirt and bring gloves and any gardening tools you may have. I hope to see you there! If you need further directions or have questions, please call me, Donna Thalacker at 352-543-6738.
Fire: More than 2,000 acres, mostly in Levy County, have been treated with prescribed burning since January.

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.
