National Key Deer Refuge guided walk schedule is set

The public is invited to join the guided National Key Deer Refuge trail walks designed for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels. In an effort to keep everyone together for the walks, the centralized meeting point will be at the National Key Deer Refuge Visitor's Center, located in the Winn Dixie shopping plaza on Big Pine Key. From there, participants will be given maps to the walk site and caravan to the scheduled trail. A prompt departure to the trail locations will take place at 8:10 a.m. to avoid missing out on morning bird activity, so plan to arrive early. Each walk will end by 11 a.m.

Participants are encouraged to bring a hat, sunscreen, bug spray, comfortable walking shoes, water, binoculars, field guides, and dress appropriately for the weather. A limited supply of loaner field guides and binoculars will be available for participants during each walk.
