Ponte Vedra Monthly Program - Traveling the National Parks

The NE FL Sierra Club in Ponte Vedra will host Mark Woods, columnist for the Times Union.

In 2012 Mark was awarded the Eugene C. Pulliam Fellowship by the Society of Professional Journalists. This award allowed him to take a yearlong sabbatical to our national parks to research this question: “Given that 2016 is the centennial of the National Parks System, what is the future of our parks?”

From Acadia National Park in Maine, westward to Haleakala National Park in Hawaii, Mark traveled and focused on one park each month. He discovered one issue in particular that is common to all parks for their future. Come hear Mark and enjoy his photography of our country’s natural legacy.

All are welcome! For further information, contact Larry Lickenbrock at (904) 537-6047. The program will be held in the main meeting room of the Ponte Vedra Beach Public Library on Library Road at A1A (blinking light south of the intersection of A1A and Solana Road, on A1A about two miles south of Butler Boulevard).

See a map to the library under More/Files.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
