FTA MEMBERS ONLY: St Vincent’s Island National Wildlife Refuge Day Hike.

FTA MEMBERS ONLY -- LIMIT 40 PEOPLE

St Vincent is located west of Apalachicola and is an undeveloped barrier island just offshore from the mouth of the Apalachicola River in the Gulf of Mexico. The triangular shaped island is 9 miles long and 4 miles across at its widest point and has over 14 miles of pristine beaches and 80 miles of criss-crossing dirt roads. We will be hiking within the several different habitat types including the beach - always hiking at a comfortable pace! Check out: http://www.fws.gov/southeast/pubs/facts/svncon.pdf.  Bring plenty of water (in a daypack), lunch, cash for shuttle, sun protection and wear comfortable clothes and shoes for hiking. We will be taking the St. Vincent Island Shuttle Services to cross Indian Pass; cost is $10.00 per person for round-trip transportation. If you RSVP know that you are responsible for the $10.00 charge even if you don’t show up or have to cancel as leader will be required to pay for your reservation. No dogs permitted.

Plan on catching dinner on the way home. Meeting location at Indian Pass and time of departure from Tallahassee finalized closer to event. It is a two-hour drive, so the departure time will be early from Tallahassee.

To sign up or if you have questions; contact the leader: Dawn Griffin (850)[masked], [masked].

    FYI - One of our fellow hikers originally from North Carolina shared with me that the red wolf pups born on St Vincent island are sent to Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in NC (real close to where where he grew up.) Too bad we could not have seen a red wolf in the wild (at a distance of course).

      Hi Dawn! Do you have down that I will be going?

    • Dawn G.

    After RSVP Deadline of Friday, Jan 17 8:00 PM - contact my email and I can advise of openings. In the past, FTA members were disappointed when popular events were filled up by non-FTA members. I try and give FTA members first shot at a spot then open it after the RSVP closing time/date to non-members. FTA membership information provided above.
