Members of the Friends of the Lower Suwannee & Cedar Keys NWRs share an interest in nature and especially our birds with members of the Cedar Keys Audubon Society. If you are available during the summer months to help with the Audubon bird rescue program, your help would be greatly appreciated.
Cedar Keys Audubon's Capt Doug Maple needs folks to answer their new bird rescue line and use the phone tree to notify volunteers. This is a great way to help our nesting and roosting birds. You don't have to be a rescuer or even leave your air conditioned house. You just have to be able send text and voice messages. If you can help please call Doug at 352 949 1995.
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.
