A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Warren Poplin

Celebrate fall at Anastasia State Park! Now is the time of year that the muhly grass begins to turn purple and the park is full of color. The weather is usually just right for taking a stroll on the beach, hiking our nature trails, or kayaking in Salt Run.

The Haunted Hayride and Enchanted Forest will be making a comeback this month. Take an old-fashioned hayride down one of the camping loops or participate in the “scare-free” option for the kids where they can walk the Enchanted Forest for a magical experience. Other activities will include music, food for sale, games, and lots of other fun. We are going to need a lot of help prior to, during, and after the day of the event. If you are interested in volunteering for this event, such as making posters, fundraising, helping to decorate, directing traffic, cleaning up after the event, etc., please contact Brittany McDermott to register at 904-461-2035 or Brittany.McDermott@dep.state.fl.us.

As always, you have the opportunity to join our CSO, the Friends of Anastasia. 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.
