Wednesday, April 17th - Golden Hour Hike

We will be hiking the Cedar Point Blue trail at NPS' Cedar Point (about 2.5 miles) at 6:00 pm with the hopes of catching some sunset views. We will meet at the Horseshoe Creek trailhead at the very end of Cedar Point Rd. You will need to go past the City’s Cedar Point Preserve, past Pumpkin Hill Rd., over a bridge, and stay right at the fork. The AllTrails link here will take you directly to the trailhead.


Friday, April 26th - Invasive Plant Removal with TPF

The Timucuan Parks Foundation is hosting an invasive plant removal at Tillie K Fowler Regional Park (7000 Roosevelt Blvd, drive all the way to the back of the park) from 1:00 - 4:00 pm. All who are interested in joining TPF in their pesky plant removal are welcome to show up and lop and chop some intruders!


Saturday, April 27th - World Migratory Bird Day at Fort Caroline National Memorial

From 9:00 am - 2:00 pm, the Timucuan Parks Foundation needs volunteers to assist with greeting, signing in, and engaging in educational, kid-friendly activities with some young naturalists. We will also be teaching people how to use iNaturalist; TPF has an expert in iNaturalist who will meet with us ahead of time to freshen up our app knowledge if needed. Please contact [email protected] if you are interested and available.


Saturday, May 11th - Firefly Walk with IXIA

This evening hike in search of stunning light-up insects will take place at the Fort George Island Cultural State Park. More information to come!


Saturday, May 25th - Microplastic Informational Hike and Cleanup

One of our members has graciously offered to share some of her expertise on microplastics while we hit the trails at Dutton Island I (City of Atlantic Beach) (located at the very end of Dutton Island Rd). Trash picker-uppers will be provided if anyone is feeling inspired to pick up some litter. We will be meeting at the pavilion at the restrooms at 5:00 pm and expect to be out for an hour and a half or so (the park closes at sundown, so no more than 2 hours).
