Many thanks to the volunteers who greeted visitors at our very busy booth at the Cedar Key Seafood Festival. Friends of Refuges made lots of new Refuge friends. We talked to about 100 individuals and families about what the Refuges are and what they do for wildlife and the regional economy. More than 70 of them asked for maps and wanted information about visiting the Lower Suwannee Refuge. They also bought tee shirts, hats, earrings, and paddling guides. Several joined Friends and made donations too.
The Refuge is open daily from dawn to dusk.
Due to coronavirus concerns, the headquarters building is closed to visitors. However, staff are working as usual and the Refuge is open for appropriate recreational uses including boating, hiking, fishing, biking, and birding.
The Refuge Manager Andrew Gude can be reached by text or phone at 703.622.3896.
