Registration will open in October.
Timucuan Parks Foundation and the National Park Service invite you to the 10th Timucuan Science and History Symposium on Friday, January 26, 2024 at the Ribault Club on Fort George Island in Jacksonville, Florida.
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. Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve is a place where natural and cultural resources connect.
Ribault Club, 11241 Fort George Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32226.
Check-in opens at 8:00 a.m. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.
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.
This event is open to the public and is presented by the Timucuan Parks Foundation, National Park Service, and Talbot Islands State Parks.
