Expedition First Coast Kickoff

Please join us as we kickoff Expedition First Coast, sponsored by Black Creek Outfitters! This event will include an interactive hike through a coastal maritime hammock and tour of the formal gardens led by a certified Florida Master Naturalist Instructor. We will also visit the unique shoreline of coquina rock formations that line the park’s Atlantic beach and participate in an engaging activity focused on sea turtle nesting season which began on May 1st. This event will appeal to children of all ages.

Space is limited, so please register now. This event is free, although there is an entrance fee to enter the park unless you hold a Florida State Parks Annual Pass. The cost is $5 per vehicle and correct change is required. The event will begin at the Visitor Center located inside the park entrance on the west side of State Road A1A. Restrooms are available at the Visitor Center and picnic area. A portalet is available at the beach.

To maximize your enjoyment, we suggest the following:
• Wear appropriate hiking shoes, preferably ones that can get wet as you explore the coquina rocks.
• Water
• Trail snacks (this is a lovely park with ample picnic space if you choose to pack a lunch to enjoy after the event)
• Sunscreen
• Sunglasses
• Insect repellent
• Rain jacket (this is Florida after all)
• Camera

    Good morning, everyone! Happy Friday!

    It looks like we are going to have a beautiful day for tomorrow's kickoff event. Just a reminder that we will start on the west side of the park. There will be a tent set up near the Visitor Center, so please check in with me upon your arrival. Please also review the suggestions above to ensure you are comfortable and can thoroughly enjoy yourself. Our itinerary is packed with fun, but we have allowed ample time between activities to grab a quick snack, use the restroom, or just rest for a few minutes. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

    See you outside!

    Good morning!

    I'm thrilled to see that some of you will be joining us for this fun event! If you are new to Meetup (like me), please make sure you RSVP for the total number in your party. The system defaults to one unless you add additional people. This is not a problem if you are joining us solo...just trying to capture an accurate head count. Also, if you don't mind, please let me know the ages of any children that may be attending with you. This will help ensure that the activities are tailored appropriately so everyone can have the best time!

    Thanks!
    Alex
