Marineland Beach Walk
January 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Join us on Friday, Jan. 20, from 9:00-10:30 am, to learn from a GTM Research Reserve interpretive guide where the restless sand comes from and where it’s going in its refusal to just stay put. Ask why the sand is fine or coarse and how it got its color. Learn about coquina rocks, dune flowers, sea birds, shells and the humble gopher tortoise who digs deep burrows and comes out to dine on prickly pears along the dunes. Bring your camera for possible sightings.
Visit our eventbrite page to reserve a spot online. Meet at GTM Marineland Office. The reserve is located at the southern end of Marineland on A1A (9741 Ocean Shore Blvd.). For more information, call 904-823-4500 or visit www.gtmnerr.org. The event is free.
