Walking with the Mastadons
April 14 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm$25
Who says that kids should have all the field trip fun? This spring, the Thomasville History Center invites you to take a history road trip to Wakulla Springs!
How would you survive in a world of giant elephants, ground sloths, and bison? How would you keep the dire wolves at bay? Begin your journey back in time on an engaging walk with Historian Dr. Madeleine Carr at Wakulla Springs State Park. Then continue on a fascinating voyage as you float over Wakulla Spring in the glass bottom boat Henry with Archaeologist Dr. James Dunbar. Discover one of the oldest underwater prehistoric sites in the country. This area of the panhandle has been providing archaeologists with faunal remains and artifacts on the prehistory of the Eastern Gulf of Mexico since the 1940s. Sites like these show us why Florida was exceptionally different from other areas when mastodons made Wakulla their home.
Registration is $25 per person and all attendees must be current members of the Thomasville History Center. Unsure of your membership status or would like to join? Contact Amelia, our Membership & Programs Manager for more information, firstname.lastname@example.org or 229-226-7664.
Guests are responsible for their own transportation and should plan to arrive at Wakulla Springs no later than 10:45am. Please wear cool, comfortable clothing and shoes appropriate for walking. Do not forget your sunscreen and bug spray!
