Join us for a fun and educational hike through Anastasia State Park when you “Walk on the Wild Side”. Meet your experienced volunteer in the beach parking lot at the end of the main park road. The walk starts out on the beautiful shoreline, continues up through the sand dunes, and travels along the boardwalk over the salt marsh. There will be an intermission and rest break at the Windsurf Pavilion.
From there, you’ll continue along Salt Run, our estuarine habitat, and through the maritime hammock. Participants will discover an assortment of flora and fauna that populate the several ecosystems of Anastasia, and they will increase their knowledge of 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 complete only the first half of the walk to the Windsurf Pavilion if preferred.
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.
$4 single-occupant vehicle / $8 vehicle with 2-8 occupants / $2 bicyclist
