Children’s book about Turtle Mound published

In collaboration with the National Park Service and local educators, Dr. Linda Walters’ lab has produced a book entitled, “We Will Remember Turtle Mound: Uncovering the Past and Saving the Future of Florida’s First People”.

This book, geared toward fourth graders, tells the story of the Timucuan people and Turtle Mound, one of the largest coastal shell middens on the east coast.  After describing the past, it tells about recent losses of artifacts due to climate change and “living shoreline” efforts to preserve and protect the midden into the future.


You can download the book on our Outreach and Education page. You can find out more about the coastal restoration work that Dr. Walters is doing on our Projects page.
