Exploring Jacksonvilles history and ecology
Feb 23, 2008
10 a.m. - lunchtime
Meet at 10. a.m. at the Timucuan Preserve Visitor Center at 12713 Fort Caroline Road (off Mount Pleasant Road) for a pleasant walk through pine flatwoods and oak hammocks with views of the St. Johns River and tidal marshes. A park ranger will join us, then we'll loop back to the visitor center for lunch. Bring your binoculars, water, and a bag lunch.
You can continue to explore the exhibits at the Center, visit the Fort Exhibit on the St Johns' River or drive to the nearby Ribault Monument before you leave. There is a modest entrance fee to the Preserve. There is no need to make reservations for the outing.
