Two footbridges destined for the Natural Pine Forest trail off the Dixie Mainline were framed and the decking was pre-cut by Ranger Jason Coates, Bill Price, 9-year-old Tristan and Debbie Meeks in the shade at the Weeks compound. The bridges will be transported to the trail and set in place on a future work day, probably in May. If you would like to help please contact the Friends.
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.
