Event Details

Join Main Library’s Adult Programming Assistant Beth online as she meets with Public Archaeology Coordinator Emily Jane Murray of the Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) at St. Augustine’s Lighthouse Park. Ms. Murray will teach us about the Heritage Monitoring Scouts (HMS Florida), a public engagement program focused on tracking changes to archaeological sites at risk, particularly those impacted by climate change in the form of erosion and sea level rise. She will discuss some of the tools they’re using, including 3D scanners, and how people can become involved in the program, and we’ll take a look at the Old St. Augustine Lighthouse. This online event is a celebration of both Florida Archaeology Month and St. Johns County’s 200th anniversary in 2021, and can be conveniently viewed on our website, our Facebook page, or our Youtube channel.
