The Honey Prairie Fire of 2011 consumed a beloved part of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge – the Chesser Island Boardwalk.  Two and a half years later, its rebuilding is nearly complete.  People who have been on the boardwalk before the fire tell me it was like walking through a tunnel of trees.  Now the vista is open, and heretofore unseen wetland pools shimmer with white water lilies and redroot.
