#2 FERRELL PROPERTY TOUR (Approx 2 miles north of the park)
The newly acquired Ferrell Tract includes 715 acres of land within the Wakulla Spring watershed. Friends of Wakulla Springs have been supporters of the acquisition of this property for many years, so the park is offering a behind the scenes car caravan tour on this new acreage not yet open to the public.

*A SPECIAL MEMBER BONUS* - The Florida Memory 2020 "Florida Springs" Calendar. This year's calendar celebrates the multitude of ways that springs have impacted Florida history, with a special focus of how that impact is documented in photographs, films and other historical records maintained by the State Archives of Florida.
