Though many of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys NWR volunteers were not able to attend, about 8 volunteers enjoyed a boat ride out to Seahorse Key and a picnic lunch. What a perfect day for the outing, with a cooling breeze, blue skies and low humidity. It was great! We volunteers want to thank the Refuge staff for the treat and for taking time out of their schedules to honor us with this special day!
Highlight of the day was seeing Roger McDaniels receive a well deserved “Volunteer of the Year” plaque for all his efforts at organizing the Brazilian Pepper busting team and all his outstanding work attempting to eradicate this tree from the islands and refuge lands. Good job, Roger! While there, Roger was able to find 4 more small Brazilian Peppers and pulled them up...
A special highlight of the day was getting to see a sleeping cottonmouth snake! Maria Sgambati told us where we might see one and she was right! Thanks, Maria! Thank goodness for my zoom lens!

We are planning to visit Cedar Key on June 8-10. We saw the excellent production on the Florida channel, and decided to make our overnight stay into a 2-day visit!
