Life in the Sand: Gopher Tortoise and Native Plant Habitats of Central Florida

comments | Read Comments

Oakland, FL - Join us for another educational Science Saturday at the Oakland Nature Preserve on Saturday, July 18th at 10am.  Did you know that a gopher tortoise burrow provides a habitat for up to 400 different species? This month’s presentation, Life in the Sand, will be hosted by Susan Carr and Rick Robbins from the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Learn all about the plants and animals that thrive in a Sandhill habitat. Afterwards, enjoy a hike around the preserve to see some of our resident gopher tortoises, first hand.

For more information or to register for camp, please visit http://www.OaklandNaturePreserve.org or call 407-905-0054.  The Preserve is open 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset and is located at 747 Machete Trail, Oakland, FL 34760.
