Sign of the Times

The Pinellas National Wildlife Refuge is an important breeding ground for colonial bird species. This refuge is a part of the U.S. National Wildlife Refuge System.

To inform the public of the importance to protect these islands, at times, the old signs of the Pinellas National Wildlife Refuge needed replacing.

Brave souls of Rick Powell, Patrick Mundus, Dave Kandz and Dave Howard recently volunteered to replace the signs at various islands.

Carting the metal poles and signs by boat, the hearty bunch in waist deep water, pounded each sign into the muddy bay water.

Thanks Rick, Dave, Patrick and Dave for your help and support.
