The Seahorse Key rookery continues to intrigue the national media. Their stories show how important it is that our refuge managers have collected data about the birds nesting behavior over many years and that the refuge includes other islands where the birds could re-nest.
The National Wildlife Refuge Association has posted a story on their website about the event.
Meanwhile, those of us who live here in the backyard of the refuges even in the summertime are enjoying their beauty as much as the media are enjoying their mystery.
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.
