On warm days that were predicted to be cool and rainy, volunteers David Davis, Jay Bushnell, Donna Bushnell, Bob Hudson, Judy Johnson, Andrew Gude, Russ Hall, Peg Hall, John McPherson, and Margy VanLandingham talked with many, many visitors to the Friends Booth at the Cedar Key Seafood Festival on October 21 and 22. It was a grand opportunity to spread the word about supporting wildlife within our two refuges. The dedication to our unbelievable environment here in Cedar Key and around the Suwannee River basin is impressive.
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.
