Friends is experimenting with having a presence on Meetup.com where guided walks can be announced to a wider group than just our members and News Brief subscribers.
Recent guided walks have included Shell Mound, the River Trail, and Secondary Road Hikes on the road to the Gopher River and on Cabin Road. Another Secondary Road Hike will be offered on Tuesday, April 23. Watch for details here on the website, on Friends Facebook page, and in Meetup.
When you join Meetup.com, which is free, you select the type and location of activities that interest you. You can also join the Lower Suwannee Refuge group and specify that you want to be notified only of Friends activities.
Meetup is a chance to let nature-interested folks who are unfamiliar with the Refuge learn about Friends activities and participate if they choose. You can join Meetup here.
