Coquina: Florida's Pet Rock

Time: 11:00 am til 12:00 pm

Location: New Smyrna Museum of History

Description: Coquina is a conglomerate rock unique to Florida’s east coast. Since the 1590s when the Spanish first established quarries, coquina was used to build every type of structure from the historic period: forts, plantations, sugar mills, houses, businesses, even cemeteries. Drawing from resources developed for the Coquina Queries teacher activity guide, this talk introduces participants to the sweeping array of coquina ruins they can visit in northeast Florida, including formation, excavation, and preservation.
