Join us on April 2 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to celebrate Ponce de Leon's naming of La Florida. At noontime on this day 500 years ago, Ponce de Leon’s navigator logged their ship’s position at 30 degrees 8 minutes – just south of today’s Ponte Vedra Beach and a few miles north of St. Augustine.

Jimmy Ponce, a descendant of Juan Ponce de Leon, along with the Men of Menendez, a 16th century living history group, will reenact the event by taking a reading of the sun at noon. The GTM Research Reserve will hold a dedication ceremony of a statue of Ponce de Leon and unveil new signs at a newly reconstructed beach overlook and a historical marker at the North Beach Access.Please RSVP online or by calling 904-823-4500.
