Gov. Lawton Chiles (second from right) talked with Aucilla River Prehistory Project members Saturday near Nutall Rise. The Governor along with Rep. Allen Boyd, Rep. Marjorie Turnbull and some 60 other people attended the open house which showcased the project and its quest to learn more about early man and his coexistence with now-extinct animals.
