Dr. Ken Sassaman, the Hyatt and Cici Brown Professor of Florida Archaeology at the University of Florida, and his students have been working with the Lower Suwannee Refuge to understand the history of Shell Mound, and what it can tell us about our present and future. Changes have been made to the Shell Mound Trail to better highlight the newest information from their investigations. With some assistance from the Friends, Dr. Sassaman will soon have a new trail guide available to the public. For a sneak peek, you can look at the draft version of the guide in the Maps/Trails section of this website.
