February 27: Winter Paddle at NFLT’s Guana River Preserve, 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM (SIGN UP HERE)
North Guana Outpost, 4415 Mickler Rd, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
Join us for a winter paddle along the Guana River at one of our preserves in Ponte Vedra Beach, ending just around sunset. No prior paddling experience is necessary! We will be launching from North Guana Outpost at 4415 Mickler Road, Ponte Vedra Beach. Please plan to arrive about 15 minutes early for check-in and a safety briefing. We recommend wearing long sleeves, bug spray, and clothes/shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Our group size is limited, so you must register if you plan on attending – even if you are bringing your own kayak/canoe. No refunds for cancellations. Join us for this scenic paddle on the Guana River!
Ongoing – Team Terrapin! Wildlife Monitoring Program
Contact Emily Dunn, Stewardship Coordinator for more info: edunn@northfloridalandtrust.
Team Terrapin volunteers monitor a nesting diamondback terrapin population every day from April through October. Volunteers commit to monitoring one day either every week or every other week. Shifts vary depending on the time of year, but generally last no more than half a day. While monitoring, volunteers look for intact terrapin nests, predated nests, hatched nests, and adult terrapins laying nests.
Ongoing – Speak Up for Florida Forever Trainings
Despite a clear bipartisan mandate from the public to fund land conservation, the Florida legislature has chosen to allocate much of those funds toward other purposes. Contact us to schedule a training and to learn more about the Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative and how to better advocate for the issues YOU care about.
