What You Need To Know

This walk at Anastasia State Park from 10 a.m.-noon starts out on the beautiful shoreline, continues up through the sand dunes and travels along the boardwalk over the salt marsh. Participants will then have an intermission and restroom break at the Windsurf Pavilion. From there the walk will continue along Salt Run, the park's estuarine habitat, and through the maritime hammock. Participants will discover an assortment of flora and fauna that populate the several ecosystems of the park, and they will increase their knowledge of some history of the park and the surrounding area. The round-trip length is 2.5 miles, but the walk proceeds at a leisurely pace. If a shorter distance is preferred, participants may choose to walk just the first half. Suggested items to bring are binoculars, comfortable walking shoes, a camera, drinking water, bug spray and sunscreen. Meet in the beach parking lot at the end of the main park road. This event is weather permitting and subject to cancellation. The walk is free with regular park admission, which ranges from $8-$2.
