North Florida Land Trust Seminar Series presents: Archaeology After Hours
Archaeology After Hours: A Talk on Climate Change and Site Stewardship is the second event in our quarterly seminar series. The focus of this series is to host speakers from partner environmental groups to bring awareness to the variety and impact of conservation work throughout the region. The Florida Public Archaeology Network is one such organization dedicated to the protection of cultural resources, both on land and underwater, and to involving the public in the study of their past. Emily Jane Murray, Public Archaeology Coordinator for the Florida Public Archaeology Network Northeast Region, will be our speaker for this event.
Across Florida, heritage sites are at risk from impacts due to climate change: erosion, sea level rise, and major storms to name just a few. Heritage Monitoring Scouts (HMS) Florida is a public engagement program that focuses on tracking changes to archaeological sites over time. Emily’s presentation will provide context for climate change issues in Florida, discuss how those changes impact archaeological sites, and let the public know what they can do to help heritage at risk.
Join us at 6 PM for a tour of St. Augustine Distillery, followed by refreshments and a complimentary cocktail, “The Florida Mule,” generously offered by St. Augustine Distillery. The presentation will begin at 7 PM.
