As summer winds down and kids return to school, take a break and head to Fort Pierce Inlet State Park. The fall season brings smaller crowds, tropical breezes and slightly cooler temperatures.

We have a number of events scheduled for the fall season. On Saturday, September 20th, Fort Pierce Inlet State Park is taking part in the 29th Annual International Coastal Cleanup. Everyone is invited to come out to the park to help us clean and protect our beach environment through debris removal.

Fort Pierce Inlet State Park will be hosting a trail maintenance workshop in honor of National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 27th. Volunteers are needed to help maintain the park’s Coastal Hammock and Redbay Run trail system.

On Saturday, October 4th, we are hosting our 5th Annual Kid’s Surfing Clinic. Park rangers and local surfers will teach children, between the ages of 10 and 16, the basic principles of ocean surfing  Pre-registration is required and all kids must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.

The Eastern Surfing Association – Treasure Coast District begins their series of surfing competitions at Fort Pierce Inlet State Park on October 26. Enjoy a day at the beach while watching our local amateur surfers compete.

For additional information or to register for any of these events, please call the Ranger Station at (772) 468-3985.

This fall, bring your friends and family to Fort Pierce Inlet State Park and enjoy "...the Real Florida."
