GTM beach volunteer cleanup post Hurricane Matthew was a two-day event on Saturday, Oct. 15 and Sunday, Oct. 16. Over 50 volunteers representing Wells Fargo, Fidelity Investments, Vystar Credit Union, Cub Scouts Pack 111 in St. Johns, Citibank, and James Weldon Johnson College Preparatory Middle School came out to lend a hand.

As an update, the Middle and South beach access parking lots are closed until repairs can be completed, but the North Beach Access Parking Lot is open. The trails are open, but some flooding has occurred so please look at the signs at the trail head for specific details. The dam is also open. The GTM Research Reserve Environmental Education Center is still without phones and internet service, but is open for any visits to the Exhibit Hall.

In the meantime, please email us at For updates, please visit For more information on how you can volunteer at GTM Research Reserve, click here.

Thank you for your patience while we recover from the storm!
