Those of us who didn't make the drive out to the Cache River Wetlands last Thursday missed out. But a few souls did head over to celebrate Christmas in our Southern Illinois swamps as this release regarding the Wetlands Holiday Open House attests:
The Cache River Wetlands holiday open house was a mouth-watering success, as usual! Over 200 friends, family, and outdoor enthusiasts joined Cypress Creek National Wildlife Refuge, Friends of the Cache River Watershed and The Nature Conservancy at the Refuge office on December 6th in Ullin, IL.
This annual open House provides an opportunity for refuge staff to meet community members, visitors and volunteers while taking part in the usual sumptuous holiday feast, which consisted of everything from venison stew to turkey gumbo and a picturesque array of desserts. Refuge staff appreciates all of the folks who came out to visit and share their interest in the Cache River Wetlands, and we hope to see you next year.
