St. Johns Riverkeeper’s Source to Sea Celebration is an opportunity to celebrate the exclusive group of individuals who have journeyed the entire 310 miles of the St. Johns River by kayak. This will be an all-day opportunity to enjoy, explore and celebrate the St. Johns River.
Join our Education Director, Ashleigh Boice, and members of the Putnam Land Conservancy for a hike at Dunn’s Creek State Park. We will take in the quiet beauty of this natural hidden gem and focus on the importance of Dunn’s Creek to the natural habitat of the area. The hike will be easy to moderate at 2.6 miles long through a combination of flat and hilly terrain. Areas vary from grassy, sandy, shady, and sunny. Closed-toe shoes, a hat, water, bug spray, and sunscreen are recommended. The length will be around 90 minutes but may run longer if we add stops along the way. Wildlife sightings are likely with species such as deer, turkeys, gopher tortoises, fox squirrels, and eagles. This hike is not recommended for children under 12. Separate Dunn’s Creek State Park Vehicle Fee is $5 per car and will be paid in cash onsite at the entrance.
Enjoy a relaxing cruise along the St. Johns River on the Pride of Palatka, hosted by St. Johns Riverkeeper. We will have speakers discuss the history of the river in the area, its current health, and more. $15 suggested donation for adults, $10 suggested donation for children. Boat will disembark from the Palatka Riverfront dock. With inquiries about registering without a donation, contact Info@StJohnsRiverkeeper.org.
The Source to Sea Celebration taking place at the Azalea City Brewing Company is a time to honor those who have paddled all 310 miles of the St. Johns River. There will be a brief program followed by a chance to mingle with these extraordinary honorees. The celebration will include food trucks and live music by Sam Pacetti.
