More than 6,000 scientists from all over the world attended the 2016 International Congress of Entomology in Orlando recently, including Friends Life Member Dan Kline. After the Congress ended Dan brought colleagues from as far away as New Zealand, Australia, and Tahiti to visit the Lower Suwannee Refuge. They were especially interested in the no-see-ums. We can show them no-see-ums! They study the insects because of the damage they cause to horse populations in their countries. How is that for an amazing bit of information you probably never heard before!
The Refuge is open daily from dawn to dusk.
Visitors are welcome to walk or bicycle around yellow Refuge gates.
