Cultural and natural resources have a shared history of over 6,000 years within the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. The interaction between nature and humans is evident…from the spoil islands to the altered wetlands, from the shell middens of the Theodore Roosevelt Area to the tabby structures of Kingsley Plantation and from the boat docks of neighboring subdivisions to the introduction of exotic animals and plants. The Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve is a place where natural and cultural resources connect.
The Science and History Symposium is a place to:
- Connect natural and cultural researchers, community residents and National Park Service personnel at Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve.
- Identify partners for conducting research within the Preserve.

- Communicate the resources available, research needs, and protocols of Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve.
