****NEW FREE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL GUIDED KAYAK TRIPS: MARCH 2ND, 3RD, 4TH, & 5TH**

St. Johns County Parks and Recreation is happy to announce that we will be partnering with the Florida Park Service to bring you a new and exciting kayak trip! In March we will launch from the Usina Boat Ramp, located at 603 Euclid Ave., St. Augustine, FL 32084. The Usina Boat Ramp is a Florida Communities Trust Park, meaning St. Johns County Parks and Recreation gets to offer this great trip for FREE! During the trip we will paddle down the Tolotmato River and into the marsh to visit Fort Mose Historic State Park. Due to the nature of the currents in this area this is considered an intermediate level trip and is not for beginners. Trips are scheduled for Thursday, March 2nd at 9am, Friday March 3rd at 10am, Saturday March 4th at 11am, and Sunday March 5th at 12pm. Seats are limited. To RSVP for a seat, or for additional information, please contact Kelly Ussia as 904.209.0335 or **[email protected]**.
