Wednesday, August 19th, Virtual Program Meeting

  • 6:00 pm-7:30 pm Program - Gopher Tortoises
  • This is an online program

If you live in Florida you’ve probably seen a gopher tortoise in your yard, in a park or conservation area, or crossing a road.  But how much do you know about these threatened, long-lived native reptiles whose lives revolve around their burrows?

Samantha Cobble, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Northeast Region biologist will provide us with a lot of information about this important species, including general gopher tortoise biology and behaviors, their value as a keystone species, the plants they eat, and how we can help them.

This program is free and open to the public.  Join us on Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82616613245 and enjoy getting to know this fascinating Florida resident.
