The First Sunday at the Refuge Presentation Series will feature Landy Luther as he presents “Welcome to St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge” on Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 2pm at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge.
St. Vincent Island is an undeveloped barrier island just offshore of Apalachicola, and is administratively part of St. Marks Refuge. The island is a haven for endangered and threatened species, including bald eagles, sea turtles, indigo snakes, and gopher tortoises. St. Vincent is an important stop-off point in the Gulf of Mexico region for neo-tropical migratory birds. In addition, the refuge serves as a breeding area for endangered red wolves.
First Sunday presentations are in the Environmental Education Center, “Nature’s Classroom” at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, 1255 Lighthouse Road in St. Marks. Seating is limited so please come early. Refuge entrance fees apply. Please call 850-925-6121 for more information.
