Fall CCOW Field Trips will Take You to Sinkholes and Coastal Marshes in Wakulla County

Published 10-16-2007
Sparkling Gems Tour – Nov 10th, 2007

Wakulla Springs Ambassador Cal Jamison will be leading a tour of the area’s springs and sinkholes. Join us at 9am on Saturday morning at the southwest corner of the intersection of New Light Church Road, CJ Spears Road, and Crawfordville Hwy (US319) - the first intersection south of the Leon/Wakulla County line. We will assemble there in the River Sinks Tract parking lot and travel in a van for the rest of the trip.

You will follow the line of sinks that open to the Wakulla-Leon Cave system as it meanders south towards Wakulla Springs. Be prepared for short walks to some of the sinks and bring bug repellent as ticks are plentiful this year. At the end of the 3 hour trip, you will have the opportunity to follow Cal in your own vehicle to Cherokee Sink, see the restoration work being done there, take a swim, and eat your picnic lunch. Registration is limited, email Rebecca to reserve your spot: cpi_rebecca@hotmail.com. You can also call 850-421-1638.
