Timucuan Parks Foundation is partnering with the National Park Service once again for the Timucuan Science and History Symposium which will take place January 28, 2022, at the Ribault Club on Ft. George Island. Early registration is now open, and guests have until January 1 to register at https://www.timucuanparks.org/symposium/ to receive the discounted event price.
Timucuan Parks Foundation is also looking for sponsors for the symposium which is a full-day event that showcases the connection between the natural and cultural resources within the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. Sponsorships are available at a variety of levels, and all will help to establish grants through Timucuan Parks Foundation for student research within the Timucuan Preserve.
The levels range from the top $5,000 Three Rivers Sponsor level to the $100 to $500 Cedar Point Patron Sponsor which is available to individuals only. The Three Rivers sponsorship is available to only one company, organization or individual. It will establish two $1,000 grants through TPF. The Salt Marsh Sponsor at the $2,500 level will provide two $500 grants for student research in the preserve. The Maritime Hammock Sponsor is a $1,000 sponsor that will help to fund one $500 grant through TPF.
This is the ninth year for the Timucuan Science and History Symposium. The event is an all-day session that connects scientists, historians and researchers with the next generation.
About Timucuan Parks Foundation
Timucuan Parks Foundation is a nonprofit organization that preserves, promotes and enhances Jacksonville’s natural areas through community engagement, education and enjoyment. The foundation originated in 1999 with the Preservation Project Jacksonville, Inc. to identify and assist in acquiring the most vulnerable and environmentally sensitive lands in Duval County. The acquisition of lands created the largest urban park system in the United States. TPF works with its park partners, including the National Park Service, Florida State Parks and the City of Jacksonville, and other community partners to promote environmental stewardship, the health benefits of the parks and preserves, and an appreciation for Jacksonville’s special outdoor spaces.
