8/22/2012 - 8/22/2022
Location: 13810 Waterfront Drive, Pineland

On this tour students walk the Calusa Heritage Trail of the Randell Research Center (RRC) with a trained docent or staff member. The Calusa Heritage Trail provides an exciting opportunity for students to experience 2,000 years of civilization preserved in midden mounds, the Calusa canal, and other features on an internationally regarded archeological site. Artifacts, tool replicas, and museum quality trail signage also bring the past to life for the students. The tour is recommended for students in grades 4 or 8 and can be tailored for other groups.

Fees: RRC requests a per student donation of $4 for the services of staff and docents and to support the mission of preservation. The RRC is a non-profit program and does not receive State or University funding for operations, staffing, and management. However, if these tours are part of a classroom curriculum, and if RRC has space available, students will be not turned away if the school is unable to provide the $4 per student donation.

Accommodations: Portions of the trail are wheelchair accessible.

Additional Information: RRC offers bus parking, restrooms and picnic tables. Students need to dress for the outdoor weather conditions and wear sturdy tie-on shoes, no sandals. Chaperones are welcome. Schools are responsible for all transportation arrangements and costs.
