The Friends had the extraordinary opportunity in August to host a visit to the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge by internationally famous nature photographer Clyde Butcher. Friends Past President Maria Sgambati was his guide. Members Frank and Mandy Offerle, Robin Gilles, Anne Lingren, and others introduced him to the wonders of our beautiful Refuge and region. The Cedar Keys Art Center will be hosting an exhibit of his works next spring and we are all hoping to have a chance to hear him talk and to meet him.
