The weekend of Feb 5-8 the Friends of Cedar Keys & Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuges will have an outing at the other end of our great Suwannee River, at Georgia's Stephen Foster State park. Various levels of camp sites are available as are cabins inside the park and an Eco Lodge run by the park is a short distance outside the park.
This state park is located in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. It is the start of the Suwannee River and offers wonderful kayaking, canoeing, fishing, trails, horseback riding, birding, etc. All activities have not been firmed up yet but will include a cookout, boat ride with a naturalist, and we are working on getting a bit of special attention from the Refuge staff.
While you don't have to be a member of the Friends group to make reservations at the park, Friends members will have preference for joining the group activities. So, an extra incentive to join or renew now.
The Park entrance at Fargo is only about 2.5 hours away and we can arrange carpooling or convoying. You may make reservations at www.gastateparks.org or 1-800-864-7275 for campsites or other lodging.
After you make your reservations please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we will have your address to pass on further info.
