Timucuan Ecological & Historic Preserve held its first Timucuan Adventure Day in January 2013. The event aim is to connect local environmental educators and the public by using the Timucuan Preserve as an "outdoor classroom." Visitors, including families and children, were able to interact with dozens of environmental groups and agencies whose objectives are similar to the National Park Service's mission of protecting natural and cultural resources. Topics explored include water quality, salt marsh ecology, park history, and interacting with nature in nondestructive ways. Visitors kayaked in the nearby cove, held and learned about insects and birds, and participated in a plethora of educational games.
