A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Paul Crawford

Now that spring has officially arrived, you can be sure you will see and hear wildlife abuzz at Anastasia. Come and take a breath of fresh air and enjoy what spring in our park has to offer. Keep a watchful eye when on the beach and mind your step as we will soon be experiencing shorebirds, seabirds, and sea turtles nesting. Please do not disturb them if you see the animals or their nests. While you are here you can rent kayaks at Windsurf or camping equipment at the Island Beach Shop & Grill. Please do not forget to stop by for one of our April programs, like our birding walk or walk on the wild wide.

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. For more information on any of Anastasia State Park’s events or programs or if you are interested in volunteering, please visit the “Events” and “Ranger Programs” tabs or contact Brittany Sims at (904) 461-2035 or by email at Brittany.Sims@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.
