September 18, 2009 the amendment of Sec. 15-3.3 of the Clay County Code went into effect.

The Operation of metal detectors and the retrieval of artifacts found on county parks and properties is now prohibited.

FPAN is delighted with the news. "We are in full support of the ordinance," said Amber Grafft-Weiss, FPAN Outreach Coordinator.

What does this mean to you?

For all metal detecting enthusiasts out there, it is now unlawful for you to wield these devices in county-owned cemeteries, burial sites, and other proprieties listed on the Florida Master Site File.

This ordinance also means that digging of any kind with any instrument to retrieve objects or artifacts embedded or lying on the ground at these sites is unlawful.

    Do public Parks include beachfront?

  2. Why no to Underground Detecting Device ? They've done something good like finding golds or even mines!
