"Sometimes the best laid plans ..........".
Due to the deluge on April 28, we had to cancel the "Coastal Cocktails" event. The Park staff and FoDIP volunteers worked very hard for several weeks to make this event a success. We were expecting over 100 paid attendees and several guests, and it was a great disappointment to cancel.
We will be rescheduling this great event for some time in November (after the threat of Hurricanes has past) and will reach out to all who purchased tickets and our donors and let them know the details.
Thanks to Pat McGonigal, the event chairperson, and all who supported this event. It will be even better next time. Click below to see the event program.

FoDip Members Train as Tour Guides



Several FoDIP members have trained to be tour guides. They received maps, information sheets, and tips on conducting a tour. On April 20, we brought our first group to the island and took them on a tour of the Pineland trail and the Shoreline trail with a brief presentation at the new Research/Education Center. It was a fun and informative adventure for both the guides and the visitors.
