Friends Board of Directors meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month, usually at the Refuge headquarters in Levy County. However, the October meeting will be held in the Town of Suwannee, in conjunction with the Suwannee Waterways Cleanup. Come for the Cleanup, have lunch together, and stay for the Board Meeting. Dan Frisk, the new manager of the Complex that includes our Refuges, St. Marks, and St. Vincent, will join us.
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.
