Donor Acknowledgment

The Aucilla River Prehistory Project gratefully acknowledges support by the State of Florida Division of Historical Resources, Florida Department of State, Tallahassee, Florida. During 1997 the ARPP received its third major grant for its archaeological research on First Floridians and Last Megafauna.

The ARPP also received major funding from National Geographic Society, Committee on Research and Exploration. Neither of these funding organizations was liable for injury or property damage that might have resulted from ARPP activities. Nor are they responsible for opinions or interpretations derived from the archaeological and paleontological research conducted under these grants.

The Aucilla River Prehistory Project also acknowledges vital support from several dozen volunteer scuba divers from Florida and beyond, who freely dedicate their time, energies and personal dive gear to participate in this important research. The University of Florida also provides fundamental offices, labs, collections, equipment, vehicles and personnel to carry forward this project.

We especially thank the Ladson family for their continuing hospitality, encouragement and support of this project's activities on their land.

Finally we are deeply indebted to many individual friends of the project who have contributed both emotional energy and material gifts to its success. We offer our heartfelt thanks to the following list of private and corporate boosters.
