Refuge staff members cleared dead shrubby vegetation (casualties of Hurricane Hermine) from the interior portion of the Shell Mound. This management activity is the beginning stage of a complete redesign of the interpretation of the Shell Mound archaeological resource. Refuge staff members and volunteers, including Friends member Ron Black, will be working with University of Florida Archaeologist Ken Sassaman and his students who are providing guidance, interpretive material, and expertise as it relates to the culture and history of the people who constructed the mound. Target date for completing this project is late summer.
