Many thanks to the almost 150 visitors who stopped by the Friends Booth to say hello and learn about the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys Refuges. We made a lot of new friends and renewed many old contacts over the course of two days of interaction with an enthusiastic festival crowd. In terms of numbers, we received $400 from sales of Friends merchandise and from donations. New members joined too. Special thanks to the volunteers who made the event possible by being there to set up and break down the booth, and to talk to all the visitors.
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.
