Friends Board of Directors meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month, usually at the Refuge headquarters in Levy County. However, the October meeting will be held in the Town of Suwannee, in conjunction with the Suwannee Waterways Cleanup. Come for the Cleanup, have lunch together, and stay for the Board Meeting. Dan Frisk, the new manager of the Complex that includes our Refuges, St. Marks, and St. Vincent, will join us.
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.
