First Sunday at the Refuge Presentation Series

Feb 3, 2013 2:00 - 3:00 PM

St. Marks Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, Environmental Education Bldg.
The First Sunday at the Refuge Presentation Series will feature Peter Cowdrey, Educator in Residence at the Museum of Florida History as he shows how Apalachee Bay and the St. Marks area were depicted on the earliest maps of Florida. Through early Spanish, French, British and American maps of our coastline, we can get hints to how features have changed over time and the location of early settlements. Peter will appear in the persona of an 18th century ship’s navigator and describe some of the early mapping tools used. First Sunday presentations are in the Environmental Education Center, “Nature’s Classroom” at St. Marks Nat’l Wildlife Refuge, 1255 Lighthouse Road. Seating is limited, so please come early. Refuge entrance fees apply. Readers can call 850.925.6121 for information.
