Nature Walk Planned
On Monday January 6, Friends life member Donna Thalacker will lead a nature walk on the Barnett Creek Loop Trail at the Lower Suwannee NWR. The trail is on high ground and Donna expects it will be dry. It is a 3-mile round trip walk in one of the prettiest parts of the Refuge. One mile will be along Barnett Creek Road and the remainder of the walk will be behind the gates along a broad grass pathway through mostly hydric hammock. If you are interested in joining the walk, please let Donna know. You can email her at email@example.com
A group will car-pool from Cedar Key Park. Gather at 9:30 a.m. Leave at 9:40 a.m.
It would be good to wear long pants, long shirt, comfortable walking shoes and bring along insect repellent. As anywhere in this area, the no-see-ums can be a problem if there is not a good breeze. Ticks can be expected, although they are not usually too bad in this area of the Refuge.
