Students from 2019

Katie Vearil

ELP Year: 2019

Major: Interdisciplinary Studies

Community Partner: Timucuan Parks Foundation

Poster: Beyond the Trail: A River Runs Through It

This was the fourth series of Beyond the Trail, led by Katie Vearil. Her theme, “A River Runs Through It” was to connect the St. Johns River to our parks and educate the importance of Florida’s longest river. Because of how the river meanders throughout Jacksonville, it impacts just about every park. Students and community members learned about the significant history of the river, as well as the challenges and victories that have and continue to impact the river. For most of the students, it had been the first time they either visited some of the parks and/or kayaked on the river. Other partners include: National Park Service
