We are honored that First Coast News Reporter Jessica Clark will serve as emcee for the Friends of the GTM Reserve’s seventh annual gala event, OceanWise: An Evening for the Estuaries! Last year, Jessica visited the Reserve with “Lewis and Clark” co-host, Lewis Turner, to film a segment on the GTM trails during National Estuaries Week. Take a look!

Jessica has covered St. Johns County and St. Augustine since 2005, longer than any other local television reporter in the market. She is an award winning journalist. Jessica won an Emmy in 2013 for the story, “Life by Accident.” In 2015, she was nominated for an Emmy for her story, “Trip Back in Time.” She graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in telecommunication broadcast news. Jessica lives in St. Augustine.

This year’s OceanWise wraps up the Reserve’s National Estuaries Day celebration. To purchase your tickets, click here.
