  • Teen Halloween Party at Ponte Vedra Library
    5:30 pm-7:30 pm
    10/09/2018
    Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library, Library Boulevard, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, USA
    The Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library is hosting its Teen Halloween Party and McGee Entertainment is providing a live D.J. for the party! We’ll also be raffling off brand-new teen books as prizes (as in published in early October 2018), serving pizza, sodas, and candy, and generally getting our Halloween on.  Coming in costume gets you two raffle tickets instead of one. It’s nothing but fun for 6th – 12th graders, and we would love as many teens as possible to come and rock out at our Library!

  • St. Johns County Duval Audubon - Monthly Meeting
    6:30 pm-8:30 pm
    10/16/2018
    Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve, 505 Guana River Rd, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082, USA
    The Status of the Summer Haven River with the Friends of the GTM ReserveOur annual meeting at the GTM NERR Visitor Center with the Friends of the GTM Reserve. Dr. Todd Osborne (Whitney Lab) and Dr. Nikki Dix (GTM NERR) will talk about the status of the Summer Haven River and its restoration. The Summer Haven River, at the southeast corner of St Johns County has been a river of environmental, historic, economic, and recreational benefits for many years. That was until 2008 when a tropical storm changed its landscape. In 2017 a re-development project began to restore the river's flow. The river is of special interest to St Johns County Audubon due to the large and active colonies of nesting imperiled birds which call the sand between the river and the Atlantic Ocean home for their offspring each summer before they leave the continent to migrate to South America.The entrance to the GTM NERR Visitor Center is just north of the Exxon Gas Station on A1A, which is approximately 7.5 miles north of the Vilano Bridge. Come early and enjoy the wonderful peace and quiet of the habitat around the Visitor Center and its fascinating exhibits.
