Six events will offer visitors an opportunity to participate in guided evening walks
The Friends of the Crystal River State Parks, Inc., in partnership with the Florida Park Service, Florida Public Archaeology Network and Gulf Archaeology Research Institute will kick off the fall season with the popular Moon over the Mounds guided evening walking tours Friday October 6, 2017.
This event is a torch lit tour of the Crystal River site led by professional interpretive guides though the moonlit Crystal River Archaeological State Park. The Crystal River Archaeological site is a world-famous pre-Columbian ceremonial center on Florida’s west coast. Travel back in time to experience the park under the full moon to learn what life was like living on the Crystal River from 500 BC to AD 950.
The Moon over the Mounds tours will begin at the Park Museum building at 8:00 p.m. and end at approximately 9:30 p.m. Suggested donations of $5.00 per person will be applied to sustaining future interpretive programming in the park.
The park is located at 3400 N Museum Pointe; northwest of the Crystal River Mall. Drive North on U.S. 19, turn left onto State Park Street, and then left onto Museum Pointe.
Reservations are not required, but appreciated for larger groups. For additional information, call (352) 795-3817. To learn more about the park visit https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/crystal-river-archaeological
