FRIENDS OF THE ARTHUR R MARSHALL LOXAHATCHEE NATL WILDLIFE REFUGE
August 1, 2013

I also started out as a visitor. Friends invited me to come with them on everglades day years ago and it was an experience I never forgot. Later visits had me meeting alligators, birds, turtles and many other creatures.
A photo meetup showed me there were Bobcats on the refuge and after several fruitless tries on the Marsh Trail, I took a hike around the Cypress Trail and had a close encounter of the best kind resulting in several great photos.
You can sit and watch, hike the trails, bicycle the levy, or paddle the canoe trail.
I am now a volunteer and member of the Friends of The Arthur R Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge and take great joy in sharing the wonder of this outstanding facility.
The Friends sponsor many activities in cooperation with other groups, operate and maintain the Gift shop and plan and fund improvements to the Refuge. They are active participants in the operation of the Refuge on a daily basis and in close cooperation with the Arthur R Marshall Foundation.
The Friends provide guides for walking and canoe tours and educational sessions.
The Friends also help to maintain the Access Road into the Refuge by adopting this portion of Lee Road.
The Friends have created much informational literature that is available at the visitors center that describe the refuge and many of its activities.
