Partnering to Promote our Local Parks
The First Coast’s local PBS affiliate, WJCT, is developing a local documentary about the national parks of coastal north Florida and south Georgia entitled National Parks of the First Coast and Golden Isles.
You can be a part of this documentary project about national parks you have visited or learned about by participating in a digital storytelling project. See what others have posted and post your own story on the WJCT website (link above).
The documentary is made possible by a grant from the National Park Foundation, the national charitable partner of America’s National Parks, through the generous support of the Evelyn and Walter Hass Jr. Fund.
THE NATIONAL PARKS: AMERICA’S BEST IDEA is a film by Ken Burns on the history of America’s national parks and the people who were willing to devote themselves to saving some precious portion of the land they loved. The National Parks of the First Coast and Golden Isles focuses on the national parks of coastal north Florida and south Georgia.
