Timucuan Parks Foundation and AARP Virtual Healthy Living Hike
Timucuan Parks Foundation and AARP are partnering for a virtual event as a continuation of their Spring 2020 Healthy Living: Fresh Air, Fitness, Friendship and Fun series. The COVID-19 pandemic has kept people out of local parks and preserves so TPF and AARP are turning to Zoom to connect people with nature and local history. Participants are invited to join on Wednesday, April 29 for a virtual Hike into History from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
As in previous walks, participants will start with some light stretching followed by a virtual tour of Kingsley Plantation led by National Park Service Ranger Emily Palmer. This year marks the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans brought to the United States. The virtual event will remember those enslaved at Kingsley Plantation, honor their stories and celebrate their contributions with a tour of the slave quarters, the Planter’s House, and the gardens and grounds of Kingsley.
The event is free and open to everyone, but registration is required and can be done at timucuanparks.org/healthy-living. A how-to Zoom guide and event link will be emailed to registrants on Tuesday. For more information, contact Felicia Boyd, program and outreach director with Timucuan Parks Foundation, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 904-463-1799.
