Guana South Beach Access

1640-1798 Ponte Vedra Blvd, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32082

This parking area is directly North of the Guana River Dam. Parking is usually limited, so we recommend arriving early or carpooling.

Location

We will meet at the parking lot area labeled Guana South Beach Acess. This location has not running water, and only portapotties. We will go on the trail for a scvenger hunt first. After that, we will head to the beach to do water testing and dip netting.

We will begin promptly, so please arrive 10 minutes before the start time to sign in and ensure punctuality.

Who is This For

This class is appropriate for kids ages 5+. The class will have fun, hands-on learning to engage younger kids, while still being challenging enough for older kids. Please see our FAQ page for any questions.

What to Expect

We will begin by doing some water quality testing using tools that scientists use. Then we will observe the land and land creatures before venturing into the water with nets to see what we can catch. This location hs no running water and only portapotties. The class should run until around noon, but feel free to stay afterwards as long as you like.

What to Bring

Water shoes or sneakers MUST BE WORN for the Dam or Alimicani Boat Ramp, shorts or clothes that can get wet (swimsuits are ok), water bottle, sunscreen; optional: personal nets or buckets

*Note*: GTMNERR South and Alimicani Boat Ramp are a fishing spot and boat ramp, so there may be debris on the ground. Everyone MUST wear a shoe that encloses the foot at all times or they will not be allowed into the water.
