GPS Pathfinder

If you are using the printed pathfinder sheet, the embosser seal and answer to the question for each station is required.

If you are using only a smartphone, the answer to the question and a photo (selfie or of a friend) is required.

If you are unable to use the embosser or take a photo, the code is needed to receive credit for that station.

Appropriate clothing, insect repellent, drinking water and snacks are strongly recommended. When you have completed the six (6) stations, come to the Visitor Center to receive a pin, or mail this page to St. Marks NWR, P.O. Box 68, St. Marks, Florida 32355 to receive a pin by mail.
