GRAND SITE WORK DAY

WHERE:  Big Talbot Island State Park

WHEN:  Saturday, March 31 at 9:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m.

Join the Timucuan Parks Foundation and Friends of Talbot Islands State Parks in a morning of outdoor trail work and vegetation clearing to help protect a one-of-a-kind cultural gem, the Timucuan Indian Grand Site shell ring on Big Talbot Island State Park. Volunteers will assist in clearing encroaching vegetation using hand trimming tools, treating palmetto stumps and removing debris. These efforts help maintain the site as the park plans to open an interpretive trail for the public to discover this local wonder. Please wear long pants, long sleeves, and sturdy shoes such as hiking boots or rubber rain boots and bring a water bottle, bug spray, and sunscreen. Meet at the Wayside parking area along State Rd. A1A, just north of the Simpson’s Creek bridge, at 9 a.m. Space is limited so please RSVP to Allison.conboy@dep.state.fl.us or 904-251-2811 and contact with any questions.
