On Friday, May 16th, Alison Conboy from the Talbot Islands State Parks provided the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise an inside look at the activities and current happenings on the Talbot Islands State Parks.
The club was thrilled to learn of the treasures, many unknown to most, the state parks have to offer Fernandina Beach residents who enjoy such close proximity to the parks.
The Talbot Islands State Parks include Little Talbot Island, Big Talbot Island, Fort George Island, Amelia Island, George Crady Fishing Pier, Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve, and Yellow Bluff Fort.
Alison reminded the group of all the fun activities that can be had within the state parks, such as canoeing, kayaking, surfing, fishing, birding, Segway touring, picnicking, horseback riding, shelling and sunbathing.
Further, there are several hiking trails covering all aspects of the parks. The Rotarians loved being reminded of all the fantastic natural resources available to the residents of this area, and they were inspired by the pride shown by Alison in her love of her job and the state parks.
The Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise meets every Friday at 7:30 a.m. at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club.
