Work continues on the River Trail. The next Work Day has not yet been scheduled but will be prior to the 2015 Annual Meeting on Saturday February 28.
If interested in working, contact John Thalacker at email@example.com
The planned improvements that day include construction of two benches along the trail, seating at the Suwannee terminus, sweeping of the boardwalks, cleaning of the display and tree markers and removing trash that has floated in from the river and is visible from the boardwalk.
The last Work Day was Tuesday, February 3. Board Members John Thalacker and Ed DeHaan along with Refuge equipment operator George Pelt spread a thick layer of limestone on the path from the parking lot to the trail and on the trail itself to cover emerging roots and irregularities on the path.
While two members who had volunteered could not attend due to work and other commitments on the 3rd, it is hoped they and others will be able to attend the next time.
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.
