Earth Day Grand Site Cleanup

  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Big Talbot Island

Registration is closed

On Monday, April 22nd, Earth Day, The Friends of Talbot Islands State Parks will host a cleanup of The Grand Site on Big Talbot Island. Along with Talbot Rangers and volunteers from the Timucuan Parks Foundation, for a morning of outdoor trail work and vegetation clearing to help protect a one-of-a-kind cultural gem, the Timucuan Indian Grand Site shell ring on Big Talbot Island State Park. Volunteers will assist in clearing encroaching vegetation using hand trimming tools, treating palmetto stumps, and removing debris. These efforts help maintain the site as the park plans to open an interpretive trail for the public to discover this local wonder.

We meet on the south end of Big Talbot Island at the Wayside parking area along State Rd. A1A, just north of the Simpson's Creek bridge, at 9 a.m. 

Following the clean up The Friends will provide lunch for all volunteers.

This is a project for volunteers 18 and older, and pre-registration is required. Please wear long pants, long sleeves, and sturdy shoes such as hiking boots or rubber rain boots and bring a water bottle, bug spray, and sunscreen. If you have loppers, clippers or garden gloves, please bring them as well.

We hope you can join us for this excellent volunteer opportunity!
