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 and enjoy getting to know this fascinating Florida resident.
