Located in the Central region at:
Anastasia State Park

Join a park volunteer to observe what life is like on the wild side. This walk starts out on the beautiful shoreline, continues up through the sand dunes, and travels along the boardwalk over the salt marsh. Participants will then have an intermission and restroom break at the Windsurf Pavilion. From there the walk will continue along Salt Run, our estuarine habitat, and through the maritime hammock. Participants of the walk will discover an assortment of flora and fauna that comprise the several ecosystems of Anastasia, and learn some history of the park and the surrounding area. The full length of the walk is 2.5 miles round trip, but the walk is at a leisurely pace. Participants may choose to only walk the first half to Windsurf to shorten the length of the walk. Suggested items to bring are binoculars, comfortable walking shoes, a camera, drinking water, bug spray, and sunscreen. Meet in the beach parking lot at the end of the main park road. This event is weather permitting and subject to cancellation.
