2020 SCIENCE & HISTORY SYMPOSIUM

FRIDAY, JANUARY 31ST / RIBAULT CLUB, FORT GEORGE ISLAND, FLORIDA

“Connect with and create the next generation of park scientists, historians and researchers”

The National Park Service invites you to the 8th Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve Science and History Symposium on Friday, January 31, 2020 at the Ribault Club on Fort George Island in Jacksonville, Florida. Check-in opens at 8:00 a.m. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Cultural and natural resources have a shared history of over 6,000 years within the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. The interaction between nature and humans is evident…from the spoil islands to the altered wetlands, from the shell middens of the Theodore Roosevelt Area to the tabby structures of Kingsley Plantation and from the boat docks of neighboring subdivisions to the introduction of exotic animals and plants. The Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve is a place where natural and cultural resources connect.

The Science and History Symposium is a place to:

  • Connect natural and cultural researchers, community residents, and National Park Service personnel at Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve
  • Identify partners for conducting research within the Preserve
  • Share success stories of researchers who have contributed to the management and interpretation of the Preserve’s resources
  • Communicate about the resources, research opportunities, and protocols of the Preserve.

The 2020 Symposium materials will be available only in electronic form. The download link will be posted here as soon as it is available.
