Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center
1800 Weedon Drive NE, St. Petersburg 33702 Pinellas County (727) 453-6500

This 3,700-acre nature preserve on Old Tampa Bay was home to at least four prehistoric cultures. Perhaps the most celebrated group was the Weeden Island Culture whose distinctive ornate pottery was first recorded on Weedon Island in 1924 by Jesse Walter Fewkes of the Smithsonian Institution. (The cultural period is spelled differently from the island.) Public programs, guided hikes and exhibits interpret the rich natural, cultural and archaeological history of the preserve.
