~The public is invited to share input on the land management plans ~

Join the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Florida Park Service for a public workshop and presentation of the update to the management plans for San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park on Tuesday, Nov. 18.

San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park interprets the history of this national landmark back to 1528 when Panfilo de Narvaez arrived with 300 men. The park sits at the confluence of the Wakulla and St. Marks rivers, south of Tallahassee.

Proposed updates for this park include the following.

  • Conducting a historic structure study of the museum/visitor center building to evaluate it for preservation and improvements, including improvements or repair of the museum roof and restroom.
  • Conducting a preservation study of the historic fort walls.
  • Improving interpretation of the historic fort walls and along the park’s existing trails.
  • Stabilizing the revetment wall along the park’s shoreline on the Wakulla River.
  • Removing the existing shop and replacing it with new shop/equipment storage buildings in a different location.

There will also be an advisory group meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 19.
