November 20: Tampa Bay’s National Wildlife Refuges: Protected Places for Our Feathered Friends

This program, presented by Pat Mundus, Friends of Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges, will explore the history of the National Wildlife Refuge, and will address the current status of the Egmont and Passage Key refuges, and some of our lesser known national wildlife refuge islands in Pinellas County. The star of the show, Egmont Key, is one of Florida's largest nesting bird sanctuaries, home to over 30,000 pairs of nesting birds each year.

Patrick Mundus is an active volunteer and board member with the Friends of Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges. His work with the group includes public outreach, land management and habitat protection, and working with the interpretive docent program on Egmont Key. A long time recreational birder he believes that the preservation and restoration of wildlife habitat in Florida is key to protecting our feathered friends.
