Join the Friends of Talbot Islands State Parks and Timucuan Parks Foundation 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.
Following the cleanup, the Friends of Talbot Islands State Parks will provide lunch. Friends of Talbot Islands will hold their Annual Meeting, giving everyone a chance to hear about all of the opportunities to assist our parks and rangers. You will be among the first to hear about upcoming enhancements to the Grand Site and how you can be a part!
This is a project for volunteers 18 and older, and preregistration is required at this link.
WEAR long pants, long sleeves, and sturdy shoes such as hiking boots or rubber rain boots.
BRING a water bottle, insect repellent, and sunscreen. Also loppers, clippers or garden gloves if you have them.
