Earth Day at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park

Details
What: Earth Day at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park
When: Saturday, April 27, 2019
Time: 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Where: Topsail Hill Preserve State Park

Join Topsail Hill Preserve State Park for their annual Earth Day Festival on April 27, 2019 from 10:00a.m. - 2:00p.m. Celebrate the Earth and Earth Day with the park and environmental organizations and agencies.  There will be nature activities, games, animals, face painting and booths as well as music and fun. 

An exciting part of the event is the participation in the #Trees4Earth campaign.  With the 50th anniversary of Earth Day fast approaching in 2020, Trees for the Earth campaign was launched in 2016, with a goal to plant 7.8 billion trees worldwide by 2020—one for every person projected to be on Earth.  The park and event attendees will be planting trees on park property as part of this campaign. 

There will be tram rides to the beach and bikes, canoes, kayaks and paddleboards will also be available for rent.  Park admission is free during the event. 

If you get hungry during the event, The Big Red Food Truck will be on site in case you want to buy food.

Park programs are made possible by Friends of Topsail Hill Preserve State Park. Come out and explore one of the most beautiful state park preserves in South Walton, Florida.

Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, located on the west side of Scenic 30A in South Walton, offers a wide variety of natural resources including 3.2 miles of secluded, white sand beaches with majestic dunes over 25 feet tall. Three rare coastal dune lakes provide excellent freshwater fishing. Although boats are not allowed, fishing from the shoreline yields bass, bream, panfish, and catfish. Lakes, pristine beaches, old-growth long leaf pines, sand pine scrub, and a variety of wetlands offer a bird-watching and hiking paradise. Visitors may bike, walk, or enjoy a quick ride to the beach on our timely tram service to swim, fish, sunbathe, or beachcomb. Gregory E. Moore RV resort features a (non-heated) swimming pool and shuffleboard courts. Furnished bungalows are available for weekly stays. A camp store offers a variety of camping items, as well as snacks and drinks.

Florida State Parks are treasures waiting for your discovery!
