After a severe drought dating back to last fall, the Refuge has finally gotten enough rainfall to resume prescribed burning. The Refuge recently conducted a successful 850-acre burn on the Triangle Loop area near Suwannee Town. With so many unfilled staff vacancies on the Refuge fire crew, the generous assistance provided by the Florida State Park Service, Florida Forest Service, and the staff of the St Marks NWR was greatly appreciated.
The Refuge is open daily from dawn to dusk.
Visitors are welcome to walk or bicycle around yellow Refuge gates.
