Timucuan Indian Grand Site Cleanup

November 23, 2019@9:00 am-12:00 pm


Friends of Talbot Islands State Parks and Timucuan Parks Foundation will be gathering volunteers on Saturday, Nov. 23 to clean up and help protect the Timucuan Indian Grand Site shell ring on Big Talbot Island. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. to clear encroaching vegetation, treat palmetto stumps and to remove debris from the site.

Pre-registration is required and can be done by searching Grand Site Cleanup Volunteer Day at Eventbrite.com (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/grand-site-cleanup-volunteer-day-nov-23-2019-tickets-79591304735?aff=ebdssbeac). Volunteers must be 18 years or older, and space is limited. Participants will meet at 9 a.m. on the south end of Big Talbot Island at the Wayside parking area along State Rd. A1A, north of the Simpson’s Creek bridge. They are asked to wear long pants, long sleeves and sturdy shoes and to bring a reusable water bottle, insect repellent and sunscreen. Volunteers are also asked to bring loppers, clippers and work gloves, if they have them. Timucuan Parks Foundation will provide water and Nature Valley granola bars.

The cleanup will last until noon and the Friends of Talbot Islands State Parks will be providing lunch. Rangers will be on hand to provide an update on the plans to open an interpretive trail that will allow the public to view and learn about this historic site.
