Walk Butler Beach and step back in time with a tour and discussion of both the cultural heritage and the natural wonders of this beach on Anastasia island, Thursday, October 26, 2023, at 10:00 a.m.
This beach is named for Frank B. Butler, a local African-American businessman, and leader in St. Augustine's civil rights movement. In the 1960s, St. Augustine beaches were de-segregated by law, but the reality was different and Butler Beach, where blacks were permitted, was sandwiched between the "whites only" beaches of St. Augustine Beach and Crescent Beach.
This walk and discussion will focus both 200 years of Butler Beach history and on the unique natural elements of Frank B. Butler Beach.
Admission: There is no cost, but pre-registration is required. To register, go here.
