Back country boaters who boat in Florida Bay from the Flamingo area of Everglades National Park should note that the popular Oyster Bay Chickee is not available for visitor use until further notice.

The Chickee, primarily made from wood and plastic decking, was significantly damaged by a recent fire and is temporarily closed.

Plans for repair are underway and the public will be notified when it is once again open for visitor enjoyment.
