People of the Apalachicola: A Community-Driven Archaeology Project

May 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

During the 2024 year, a team of archaeologists from the University of West Florida and the Florida Public Archaeology Network are collaborating with the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve to explore the over 12,000 years of human history embedded along the Apalachicola system. Nicole Grinnan, M.A., RPA Public Archaeologist and Interim Executive Director of the Florida Public Archaeology Network will discuss the integration of digital modeling, heritage sites recording, and community engagement in and around the Reserve, the project seeks to identify how people, past and present, use and value resources in the Apalachicola system. This presentation will briefly explore Apalachicola-area history and heritage, highlighting the ways in which archaeological sites are at risk from climate change impacts. Especially important to the discussion is how engaged communities can play a critical role in the long-term preservation of local heritage!
