The event will be held in the Florida Room at the Park’s Visitor Center on U.S. 19. There is no charge to attend Homosassa Heritage Day exhibits and activities. (Regular park admission will be required for entrance into the Wildlife Park.)
Old Photo Album panels will display historical photos. Exhibitors will include the Citrus County Libraries, Citrus County Historical Society, Florida Public Archaeology Network, Homosassa River Garden Club, Homosassa River Alliance, and an exhibit on pioneer woman Dessie Smith Prescott.
Guest speakers will include Park Services Specialist J.D. Mendenhall who will do a presentation on Ivan Tors and his contributions to advances in animal training methods; Retired Rangers Jack Kearns and Patrick Dillard who will share stories of the attraction’s early days; and Candace Boothe, Margaret Harris, and Gus Valderrama will reenact a conversation between pioneer woman Dessie Smith Prescott, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Ernest Hemingway.
