Happening at the Park

Park staff and re-enactors show off various tools and tricks of the colonial life. See what a soldier carried in his backpack. Get an up close look at a Spanish flintlock musket and watch it fire. Look into the shot locker and learn about the many uses of cannons of the time. On some days we also demonstrate bullet making over a fire.

Musket firing and bullet making demonstrations are subject to weather conditions and staffing.

Please check the calendar of events for upcoming activities and times.

Fort Matanzas National Monument frequently presents ranger or volunteer-led Nature Programs. These programs can vary in physical exertion from a stationary program in the picnic area, a short walk on one of the park's nature trails or a 2 mile hike along the park's beaches. Check the above calendar for specific details and dates for these programs.
