Join us to explore where the St. Johns River begins.
The Fort Drum Marsh Conservation Area is where our river begins its 310-mile journey. Its mosaic of wetlands and uplands are a sight to see, accessed by a meandering boardwalk through its blackwater hardwood swamp where the sunlight is muted by the cover of cypress, cedar trees and sabal palms.
Blue Cypress is the first lake of the St. Johns River, known as the River of Lakes. It is also one of the most important, highly-concentrated nesting areas for Ospreys in North America. This trip is scheduled during nesting season when populations are at their peak.
Please register by March 21.
Please RSVP for everyone in your household who plans to attend.
