Event description

Description

Join us on a fascinating field trip to the Page-Ladson site where we'll explore the ecology and archaeology of one of the oldest Paleo-Indian sites in the country! Archaeology experts will lead a discussion of recent discoveries as we traverse the North Florida terrain at the mouth of the Aucilla & Wacissa Rivers. Space is limited! The Nuttall Rise property, belonging to Mr. John Ladson and located in the Big Bend region of North Florida between Jefferson and Taylor Counties in Lamont, is the location of one of the oldest Paleo sites in the country. The trip will take about 3 hours in total and will require walking of just over 2 miles through fairly easy terrain. Water and snacks will be provided but please feel free to bring your own supplies as well. Long pants, shirts and closed toed shoes are highly recommended. Sunblock and bug spray are also helpful. Along our trip we will explore the terrain of North Florida at the mouth of the Aucilla and Wacissa Rivers. The ecology of the land as well as the history of the area will be explained as we explore this stunning piece of property that has been used by both modern and ancient peoples. Registrants are responsible for their own transportation to Nutall Rise and will be provided with directions prior to the event date. There is no fee for this event, but space is limited so please contact as soon as possible!
