Plans are coming together for an exciting Refuge Week this year. On Saturday, October 13th, Friends group members are invited to our annual field trip. This year we are joining forces with the Skidaway Institute for a boat ride to Wassaw Island NWR
where a variety of activities are planned including a presentation by our favorite Teddy Roosevelt repriser, Joe Wigand
. Joe was such a hit last year he has been invited back to help us once again celebrate Refuge Week. The field trip is available only to Friends Group members and their guests and registration is required. More details later.
On Sunday, October 14th, we have once again partnered with Savannah Riverboat Cruises for a sightseeing cruise up the Savannah River into the Savannah NWR. TR will accompany us on the cruise and regale us with stories from the life of the founder of the National Wildlife Refuge System. We had a great time last year despite the rain and encourage all who missed the cruise last near not to make that mistake again!
Friends group members will receive discounts on up to four tickets per Family membership. The discounted tickets will be distributed by the Friends group. Regular-price tickets are available from Savannah Riverboat Cruises
. Lunch is available for an additional fee, or bring your own.
