REMINDER: be sure to check out all the festivities for the 120th Pelican Island NWR Anniversary Celebration coming up next month. The sunset wine and cheese cruise around Pelican Island with President Teddy Roosevelt has only two seats left, so reserve soon if you are interested in joining us!
We invite you to join us the weekend of March 10-12, 2023 to celebrate the 120th anniversary of Pelican Island as the first National Wildlife Refuge. The celebration will once again be new and different from the wildlife festivals we’ve hosted in years past, in Sebastian. Events are planned at various locations and will feature a wildlife display, and other activities at the entrance to Centennial Trail, at the Refuge.
We’ll be hosting a very special Meet & Greet, March 11 from 10 am to 3 pm, a “Sundae Social,” March 12, 11am to 3pm, with President Roosevelt at the Refuge and a sunset wine and cheese pontoon boat cruise around Pelican Island. .
See the additional information on our website for other special events taking place for the Celebration!
