In 2004, the Calusa Heritage Trail opened at the Randell Research Center (RRC) providing the public access to the Pineland, pre-Columbian archaeological site where decades of interdisciplinary work has systematically provided environmental and historical contexts. The Trail has become increasingly popular with residents and tourists and the Center’s staff and volunteers are engaging visitors in a variety of ways to meet the mission of the RRC, which is “As we Learn, We Teach”. In addition, new research undertaken at the Center has shed light on the ways that archaeological studies provide evidence of climate changes and other environmental patterns of past while also providing clues to how people were impacted and responded to those changes. Cindy will highlight and describe these new endeavors of RRC, she will outline the future goals of the Center, and she will describe ways the public can support these goals.
