The event is part of the organization’s quarterly seminar series

Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 30, 2017 – North Florida Land Trust will be hosting Archaeology After Hours: A Talk on Climate Change and Site Stewardship. The event is part of their quarterly seminar series. Archaeology After Hours will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at the St. Augustine Distillery at 112 Riberia St. in St. Augustine. It begins at 6 p.m. with a tour of the distillery and cocktail hour, followed at 7 p.m. by a talk by Emily Jane Murray, public archaeology coordinator for the Florida Public Archaeology Network Northeast Region.

Murray will discuss climate change issues in Florida, how the changes impact archaeological sites and will talk about what the public can do to help. The Florida Public Archaeology Network promotes and facilitates stewardship, public appreciation and value of Florida’s archaeological heritage. Across the state, heritage sites are at risk of things such as erosion, sea level rise and major storms.
