Birding walk for visually impaired

-A A +A

   The Friends of the Lower Suwannee Refuge will host a birding walk for visually impaired individuals on Monday. Meet at 8 a.m. at the River Trail parking area of County Road 347, just south of Fowler's Bluff. Turn at the Lower Suwannee Refuge "River Trail and Offices" sign, and the trail is a quarter mile down on the right.
   There will be staff, members from the friends group and co-hosts Lions Club to provide assistance where needed. Jerry Krummrich of Lake City, who worked for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission for 34 years, will lead the walk. He'll identify birds by their melodic songs and provide descriptions of the birds and their habits. Krummich said his goal is, "to add joy to lives of people who cannot see the birds."
   For more information or to reserve a spot, call Refuge Ranger at 352-493-0238, ext. 223; or Jay Bushnell at 352-493-1807. Please RSVP to hold your spot and to provide us with your phone number in case inclement weather prevents the walk.
