Coquina: Florida's Pet Rock

Time: 10:00 am til 11:00 am

Location: Anderson-Price Memorial Building, 42 N Beach St, Ormond Beach

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.

This lecture is for the Ormond Beach Historical Society. It is free and open to the public.

FPAN is co-hosting this event.
