Unique Opportunity to Join Friends of Noxubee Refuge on April 1

Tomorrow - Tuesday, April 1 - a Friends-only event will be held at the Refuge at 11:00 to inventory the fish in the ponds where the Youth Fishing Derby will be held on April 26. The fisheries biologists will be available to conduct this procedure, known as electro-shocking. This should be fascinating to witness and will help Refuge staff assure that plenty of fish are available for the kids to catch on the 26th!

If you are not a friends member and would like to participate, now would be a good time to join. An individual membership costs only $15; a family membership $25. Bring cash or check with you and come on down to the Refuge.

We'll meet at the ponds. Go about a mile beyond the Visitor Center (and past the Goose Overlook turnoff) and then turn left on to the gravel road - the gate will be open. (Stop by the office or call them at 323-5548 if you need more specific directions.)
