The Refuge will welcome visitors on Seahorse Key on Wednesday March 27. This follows on an Open House on March 13 when more than 150 visitors came to learn about Seahorse Key and the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge.
After having abandoned the Seahorse Key rookery a few years ago, many of the birds have begun nesting on Snake Key but they have not returned to Seahorse Key rookery this year.
Snake Key is therefore closed to visitation and Seahorse is open a few times during the season.
Visitors can arrive at the Open House on their personal boats or on a shuttle from the vendors at the Cedar Key marina.
