Exciting News — Apalachee Bay Paddling Trail Symposium Set for February 28!

Launching a kayak into Apalachee Bay can open a door to the rich history, unique culture, and vast natural beauty of Wakulla’s coastal wilderness.  Over the last four months, a steering committee of local experts and advocates – including Doug Alderson, DEP Office of Greenways and Trails; Robert Baker, TnT Hideaway; Madeleine Carr, Historian; Bill Lowrie, Big Bend Scenic Byway and Maritime Center; Mike McNamara, St. Marks Outfitters; Mark Mitchell, Panacea Waterfronts; Pam Portwood, Wakulla County TDC; and Liz Sparks, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission – have outlined 10 distinct half-day paddling trails on Apalachee Bay.

 

Now for the fun part – we invite you to attend the Apalachee Bay Paddling Trail Symposium to review the information and discuss:

 

  • Logistics of Each Trail Segment
  • Cultural, Historical & Natural Significance
  • Interpretive Elements of Each Trail
  • Promotional and Sponsorship Opportunities

 

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Thursday, February 28, 2013 from 1:00 – 4:00 P.M. at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in their new Nature’s Classroom Conference Center.  Contact Diane Delaney, Project Consultant, at 850/984-0663 for more details.
