The Public Trust Environmental Legal Institute of Florida is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to protect and enhance the lands and waters in the public trust. While this is often accomplished through legal means, we determined that there was a need for a comprehensive guide to entice recreational paddlers to this beautiful segment of the Intracoastal Waterway. The result was this Paddling Guide made possible through a grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Coastal Management Program, and our supporting partners.

Many thanks go out to our Partners – The City of Atlantic Beach, The City of Jacksonville Beach, The City of Jacksonville, and Kayak Amelia. Without their support in the form of documents, equipment, knowledge and financial assistance, this project would not have been nearly so successful.

Thanks also go to the artist who created this masterpiece – Patti Cross with Tom Cross, Inc.
