A graduate class offered University of Florida students from the Law School, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences a first hand experience studying climate change in Cedar Key and on the Suwanee River. Below is a link to a 6-minute video about the class. It includes many lovely images of our refuges and region.
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.
