Come join us for a free guided hike to learn from a GTM Research Reserve interpretive guide where the restless sand comes from and where it’s going in its refusal to just stay put. Ask why the sand is fine or coarse and how it got its color. Learn about coquina rocks, dune flowers, sea birds, shells and the humble gopher tortoise who digs deep burrows and comes out to dine on prickly pears along the dunes. Bring your camera for possible sightings.
The reserve is located at the southern end of Marineland on A1A (9741 Ocean Shore Blvd.). To reserve a spot and for more information, call 904-823-4500. You can also visit the event website to reserve your spot.
