A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Warren Poplin

Share your love of Anastasia State Park with your friends, family, or loved one this February. There are plenty of opportunities to spot some unique wildlife while enjoying a stroll on the beautiful trails. On February 7th, enjoy music in the park with some local musicians. On February 15th join a park volunteer on the monthly guided bird walk. The colder season typically brings in some less common species of birds. On February 28th a park volunteer will offer a walk on the wild side, where you will go off the beaten path to learn about the plants and animals which call Anastasia State Park their home. Please see the “Event” tab for more details.

Anastasia is always seeking the aid of volunteers, but in particular we are need of the following volunteer assignments: special events, ranger station, interpretive programs, and photography. Please contact Brittany McDermott at Brittany.McDermott@dep.state.fl.us or (904) 461-2035 if you are interested.

As always, you have the opportunity to join our CSO, the Friends of Anastasia State Park. A yearly membership fee of $25 gets you 12 free passes into Anastasia State Park, a $96 value, as well as the chance to get involved and help out our park. To sign up, please visit www.friendsofanastasia.org.  Currently, there is one board member position openings on the CSO for which we are taking nominations, so please contact Brittany McDermott using the contact information above. Do not forget that 100 volunteer hours will get you a free annual pass into Anastasia State Park and 500 volunteer hours will get you a free annual pass good for all of the Florida State Parks.
