Originating at MOSH last year, the Timucuan Parks Foundation’s “Celebrate & Explore Our Wilderness Parks” 20th anniversary exhibition is currently on display in the Fernandina Beach Branch Library’s community room through December 31, and possibly into 2021.
Designed to raise awareness of the wilderness parks and TPF as the nonprofit stewarding them and connecting people to their parks, the exhibition introduces visitors to the parks network using lush watercolor paintings and informative art panels, beautiful nature photography prints, and a video featuring drone footage and still images. The exhibition also introduces the 7 Creeks Recreation Area concept, the new branding of the collection of seven neighboring preserves in northeast Jacksonville.
On its first road trip, the exhibition opened at the Fernandina Beach Branch Library in August, courtesy of Friends of the Library Fernandina Beach and Nassau County Public Library. Planned engagement activities were switched to virtual trips to the parks using short topical videos.
The exhibition plans to travel next to another beach-side community in the spring.
