A friend sent me a list of some events around Florida. The contacts are people who work at the parks / museums, so look them up yourself. I don’t want to post email addresses on the internet because spam harvesters collect them that way.
August 5--Day in Florida History--DeLeon Springs state park in Volusia County. Seminole War battle. Previously multi-period time-line. No mention in current info, but there's a new coordinator. No powder, bring your own, they'll give you $10 allowance. Parking and modern camping moved to field outside park. Contact: Donna Collins
