Grand Site Cleanup Volunteer Day

November 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Meet at the Wayside parking area along State Rd. A1A, just north of the Simpson’s Creek bridge, at 9 a.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.

Following the cleanup, The Friends of Talbot Islands State Parks will provide lunch.

Park rangers will be on hand to share updates on the progress of the upcoming enhancements!

This is a project for volunteers 18 and older, and preregistration is required. 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. If you have loppers, clippers or garden gloves, please bring them as well.
