Join us for the 4th annual National Key Deer Refuge sponsored Ranger-Guided “Summer Nights Adventure Program”. Visitors and locals are welcome at these free, kid-friendly, nature-oriented walks and bike rides. Meet at the Refuge Visitor Center, (179 Key Deer Blvd in Winn Dixie Plaza, on Big Pine Key). Attendees are encouraged to wear sturdy footwear (that is ok to get wet), bring bug spray and a camera to capture the moments. For details, or information, contact Kristie Killam at 305-304-9625 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Come on out, we guarantee a fun time!
