The first talk in TPF’s speaker series is May 20 featuring Felicia Boyd, Program and Outreach Director for TPF
Timucuan Parks Foundation will be kicking off the speaker series for its “Celebrate & Explore Our Wilderness Parks” Exhibition at the Beaches Museum on Thursday, May 20. TPF Program and Outreach Director Felicia Boyd will be leading the talk that will focus on the nonprofit’s health and equity initiative and the recreational opportunities in Jacksonville’s parks and preserves. The event will be held in person at the museum at 6:30 p.m. Guests will also be able to attend virtually.
“We support more than 20 national, state, and city ‘wilderness’ parks and preserves that are there for everyone to enjoy,” said Boyd. “You can go walking, biking, kayaking, fishing, bird watching, and more. We want to make sure you know where to find these natural places and know how much they can benefit you both physically and mentally. I hope you will join me on May 20 to learn more about the parks, programming that you and your family can participate in throughout the year, and how everyone can be a part of our mission.”
Guests can join the Boardwalk Talk in person or virtually on Thursday, May 20, but pre-registration is required. There will be limited attendance for the in-person event and social distancing and masks are required.
