First Landing State Park TATC Structures and Trails Evaluation

Dear TATC Friends,

A few weeks ago you expressed an interest in helping with the mapping structures and trail evaluations in First Landing State Park. Thank you for your patience. I think we have now worked out most of the "bugs" in the process.

We have set up two training dates where you will be able to ask questions and sign up to survey a Park Trail. It is anticipated that the training should last approximately an hour. The dates/times are: 9:00 AM Friday October 29th or 9:00 AM Saturday October 30th. You will need to only attend one of the training sessions.

Location: First Landing State Park Picnic Area Shelter (Land Side). From Shore Drive Eastbound turn RIGHT at the stoplight into the Park (Cypress Swamp Road). At the contact station (Tool Booth), if you don't have a park pass, tell the attendant that you are attending a meeting for volunteers and you will receive a free parking pass. After the contact station, take an immediate right turn into the picnic area parking lot. The shelter is towards the back on the right.

You will need to bring:

Your GPS unit and/or your cell phone with the Avenza app if you have them. Please set them to degrees/ minutes/seconds. If you don't have a GPS unit please come, we need people to score the trails and structures on the survey form.

We will set up teams of three persons (minimum of 2) to do the actual surveys. The survey can be conducted anytime at your convenience after the training.

Bring your face mask should we need to move the event indoors or to use the restroom.


In Order to participate you must register with Ellis Malabad, by 5:00 PM Wednesday October 27th.  Please indicate which session you will be attending as I need to turn a roster to the Park prior to the training.

Again, thank you for your interest in the TATC and First Landing State Park.
