The United States House of Representatives on Friday passed legislation to rename the Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge after Nathaniel “Nat” Reed, who passed away in July. The renaming follows a successful effort by Rep. Mast to increase the size of Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge to protect additional land and endangered species.
“Nathaniel Reed is a man I was proud to know and one of the most influential environmental leaders,” Rep. Mast said. “Nat always ended every phone call by sending his sincerest best wishes Today, we send him our sincerest and remember his unwavering commitment to America’s Everglades and his service to our nation.”
