“Welcome to Florida!” (Wild Florida Series - Program 1)
Saturday, February 18, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EST)
After walking in the front door of Florida’s oasis it can be challenging learning about the tropical plants, strange and sometimes menacing looking critters, unruly weather patterns like hurricanes and La Nina, all while grasping the critical conservation issues - especially if you come from a climate dramatically different from here! A Sensing Nature biologist will make your transition easy by introducing you to Florida basics and answering your questions from nature fact to folklore (...do alligators really live in sewers?). Let us get you on the correct footing in your new tropical dream state and be sure to bring a Florida “native” friend to debunk some of their myths too! After the indoor presentation, participants will experience Florida’s natural wonders on a nature walk.
Join Sensing Nature for this 3-part Brooker Creek Preserve Wild Florida series. Attend one, two or all three programs. Participants attending all three programs will receive a Florida Snake Identification Guide or Florida pre-historic fossil. Adults and families welcome. Limited space.No dogs, and please wear closed-toe shoes and appropriate clothing. Meet at the Auditorium.
