A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Warren Poplin

Anastasia State Park has been thriving with wildlife. The least tern nesting season has come to an end and was extremely successful, reaching a peak of 86 flight capable juveniles. Our sea turtle nesting season continues with new nests being regularly identified. Our FrogWatch USA monitoring season has also been quite productive with a total of 11 native species identified so far.

Your child can become an Anastasia Junior Ranger as part of the new statewide program. Stop by our ranger station to get your folder, complete the activities, and then take the Junior Ranger pledge!   

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. We are also seeking two fall semester interns, seeking college credit. We are offering both a Parks and Recreation Internship and a Park Services Specialist Internship from September 5th through December 4th. If you are interested in volunteering or interning, please contact Brittany McDermott 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.
