As we continue our planning for the Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge Forestry
Field Day coming up on *March 26th*, there is some additional information
about scheduling and the options available to you and your students during
the 12:00n-2:00p time slot after lunch that you need to be aware of. The
staff at the Refuge are adding an archery venue that will probably be very
popular with your students. The archery venue will be walk up and shoot and
there will be several of the Refuge staff available to provide safety
information and to move groups of 4-5 students at a time through shooting

Canoes will not be available for renting this year. We are not trying to
rain on your students' parade, but it was decided, for safety reasons, to
just stick to guided boat tours on the water. Please call Okefenokee
Adventures at 912-496-7156 to make reservations for the one hour guided
boat tours. Those reservations need to be made by *Monday, March 16*.  If
you do not pre-register, you may still be able to sign up for the one hour
boat tour on a first come/first served basis on event day. It is the
objective of the Refuge staff for you and your students to experience as
much of the Refuge as it has to offer, but two hours is just not a lot of
time to do, so plan your day to make the best use of the time available.

I have attached two documents to assist you in your planning to make
optimum use of your time after lunch. I look forward to a great day as we
wrap up the Forestry Field Day season at one of our nation's most treasured

Chapters and numbers are listed below. If your chapter is not listed and
