To J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge,


We, Soul River Inc. youth leaders, would like to thank you for further broadening our knowledge of the Florida ecosystem. We respect your enthusiasm towards your interaction with us. We admire your thoroughness of the information we received during our time there. With the vast amount of knowledge, you have supplied us with, we plan on returning to our communities educating others about the refuge. Our experience at the refuge furthered our studies and our aspirations. Learning skills to observe animals has given us one perspective of a more enhanced skillset. Being given the opportunity to observe nature up close on the hike, we realized now a single species can greatly impact the ecosystem.


We would like to give a special thanks to:

Toni Westland. Thank you for being enthusiastic about taking us on a journey throughout the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. We enjoyed how you kept us engaged while we gained knowledge.


Thank you to all staff for creating memorable experience.

— Soul River Inc. Youth Leaders
