Today Wildlife Dr. was closed due to a dust control test of different materials 
on the roads. Different materials are being tested to try to come up with a 
solution to the limestone dust that we experience here at the refuge in dry 
times.  But in spite of not being able to go to the productive marshes along 
Wildlife Dr. we were still able to find 61 species.  Dead Woman Pond continues 
to be very productive.
