Enjoying perfect cleanup weather on October 20, twenty-three volunteers collected 1,704 lbs of trash from the canals and creeks around the town of Suwannee- four times more than last year! The picture below is the Leverette's haul and they only cleaned a small section near their house.
After a chicken & rice lunch served Dixie county style off the back of a pick-up truck, Daniel Barrand, Refuge Forester, gave a excellent presentation on the history of the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge that left me feeling proud I helped clean one of the largest pristine coastal wetlands in the country. I am lucky to live here and enjoy its unspoiled beauty.
Thanks to all who came out and got muddy!
