What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Healthy Living

The Healthy Living: Fresh Air, Fitness, Friendship, and Fun program introduces seniors to Jacksonville’s wilderness parks and preserves to learn about the physical and mental benefits of recreating outdoors. The program gets folks outdoors to explore new parks, meet new people, and enjoy low-impact exercise and raises awareness of these special outdoor spaces.

Population(s) Served
Seniors

Timucuan Parks Foundation continues to increase awareness and stewardship of the wilderness parks through its robust volunteer program supporting park partners National Park Service, Florida State Parks, and City of Jacksonville. The program fills the gap for additional people power needed for trail building and maintenance, shoreline and park cleanups, invasive plant removal, pollinator and historic garden maintenance, painting, and light construction projects; assisting in nature studies; and raising awareness of the parks and engaging with the community. Hundreds of volunteers annually give thousands of service hours to TPF and the parks.

Population(s) Served
Students
Adults
Adolescents
Children
Preteens

During the pandemic, Timucuan Parks Foundation created a program that allowed students to volunteer outdoors in order to complete community service requirements for graduation. The program continues: students contribute to park beautification, submit information about their cleanup(s), and receive certification of their community service. Students help ensure that trails, trailheads, and parking and other areas are litter-free.

Students

Timucuan Parks Foundation is committed to increasing access to, awareness, and stewardship of the wilderness parks through outdoor recreation and environmental education. TPF continues to partner with National Park Service, Florida State Parks, and City of Jacksonville and community organizations to create access and provide opportunities and programming to connect diverse and historically underrepresented communities to the wilderness parks and the benefits outdoor recreation provides.

Timucuan Parks Foundation is working with three park partners (city, state and national) and numerous community partners to focus efforts on common preservation and conservation goals:
• Organizing volunteers who provide thousands of hours of in-park maintenance and restoration care.
• Planning early stages of an expansive program to restore pastures and silviculture tracts. Pilot project: 200 acres of pine plantation at Betz-Tiger Point Preserve (with the Public Trust Environmental Legal Institute of Florida).
• Establishing a Living Shoreline project.
