Help support the WWRA! Traditionally, the Decatur Jaycees select a non-profit organization to donate all Christmas parade proceeds; however, this year, the decision has been made to open voting to the public. Each vote will cost five dollars. The winning non-profit will receive its voting proceeds, and all parade proceeds. You may vote for WWRA using the Eventbrite link below! BE SURE TO SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST TO FIND US.
The majority of the pictures used for this website were taken by Mr. George Lee, an excellent wildlife photographer, who has been taking pictures on the refuge. His exceptionally high quality photos can be found on Flickr.
