Protecting the Gopher Tortoise

November 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The gopher tortoise is a protected species found in all 67 counties in the Sunshine State. Learn about their anatomy, diet, life span and what you should do if you find one that is sick or injured. Staff will share ways to participate in citizen science activities that help provide biologists with important data used in gopher-tortoise-conservation efforts. After the presentation, the group will take a short walk into Lyonia Preserve to view an active burrow. Participation is limited to 10 people. Free. Registration is required; call 386-789-7207, ext. 21028.
