Timucuan Parks Foundation and the National Park Service invite you to the 9th Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve Science and History Symposium on Thursday, April 28 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. The Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve is a place where natural and cultural resources connect.
Ribault Club, 11241 Fort George Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32226.
Located off Heckscher Drive/A1A via I-295 and accessible via the St. Johns River Ferry from the Mayport area..
