FEB 12 NATURE WALK PICNow that the weather has warmed up and we’ve had rain, we should start to see flowers blooming in the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge! On our walk last month, the only flowers we saw blooming were tiny violets. Even so, there was plenty of bird activity and we even saw butterflies, including one monarch trying to nectar on a tiny violet!

Please join me for a walk in the refuge on Friday, Feb 16. So far it looks like we will have good weather for the walk. We will meet at the Cedar Key Town Park parking lot at 9:30 am and will carpool to the refuge from there. The walk will be about 2 hours in duration and we will look for wildlife and hope to see some wildflowers. Last month’s walk a bobcat was sighted crossing the road and there were hundreds and hundreds of robins. A Ruby-crowned kinglet perched in the sun so most of us got a good look. Each walk at the refuge is different!

If you have any questions or would like to meet us in the refuge rather than Cedar Key Town Park, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call me at 352-543-6738.

I hope to see you Friday!
