JOIN US ON OCTOBER 15, 2022 - 10AM - 2PM for International Archaeology Day and the Weedon Island Cultural and Natural History Center!  This FREE event is a celebration of archaeology and its contributions to society.

Every October the American Institute of Archaeology (AIA) and archaeological organizations around the world present archaeological programs and activities for people of all ages and interests. AWIARE will be on-site with a display of pre-Columbian artifacts from the Tampa Bay region and experts will be on-hand to illustrate the use of these tools and their importance to Native populations. Visitors are encouraged to bring in artifacts such as spear points, tools, and pottery sherds for identification during the event. No dollar value will be assigned or discussed, but educational information will be generously shared.
The Center is open between 10 AM and 2 PM.


Weedon Island Preserve, at approximately 3,700 acres, is an ecological jewel within an urban landscape on the shores of Old Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Florida. A refuge for native flora and fauna, Weedon Island is also one of Florida's most important cultural resources. Discover the rich human history of the Island that began thousands of years ago and witness how the environment and people support and shaped each other to produce the Preserve we know today.

This production was made possible through the support of the Friends of Weedon Island, an organization dedicated to the continuing education, protection, and preservation of the Weedon Island Preserve.
