Big News!

It is finally official.  I am the newest Assistant Park Manager at Wekiwa Springs State Park.  You may remember in January, I went to another park and went to an interview.  They liked me!  I am looking forward to the change and the new things that I will learn.  This is a much larger park.  Troy has 80 acres and Wekiwa has 42,000.  The park has camping and a youth camp area as well as extensive hiking trails and river access for canoeing and kayaking.  There is a beautiful spring and some amazing natural areas.  Florida Black Bears inhabit the park as well as many other unique Florida creatures.  There will be so many more opportunities for me at this new park.  I am grateful for the experiences that I have had at Ichetucknee and Troy.  I have learned so much at these two parks, but I am ready to learn more.
My first day will be March 15.  I have to move into my new residence and get to know my new park.  I also have to leave information for the person who takes my place.  There is so much to know.  It is a little bit intimidating to have so many things changing at once, but it is also exciting.  Don't worry about the blog.  I have 115 days left in my intended year and I will bring you all along to my next position.
Here are some more of the photos that I took on the day of my interview at Wekiwa Springs State Park.

Amy- with moving three hours South, will that mean more snakes, more importantly are poisonous water snakes at the new park? Im interested to her all the new Dozzer stories about his new surroundings. An adventure for all is sure to come.
