Event Details

 

 Lake County is home to some of the most beautiful and unique ecosystems in the State of Florida. Residents enjoying the “Lake County Lifestyle” often find themselves living shoulder to shoulder with “Mother Nature”. Join us for a day of educational workshops, walking tours, and hands on learning as we discover new ways to live in greater harmony with our natural neighbors!


Classes Include:


Building Backyard Habitats

Your backyard can be more than just a place to BBQ! With a little creative landscaping your yard can become home to a variety of native, beneficial species of wildlife.

 

Alien Invaders

Non-native plants and animals threaten the vitality of natural communities. Learn how to spot these alien invaders and how to battle them on your own turf.

 

Gators, and Coyotes, and Bears OH MY!!

Humans are not the only animals who call Lake County home. Learn what to do (and what not to do) when you come face to face with your natural neighbors.

 

Be Fire Wise

Wildfires can pose a serious risk to people living in close proximity to natural areas. Understand common fire-management techniques and what you can do to protect your home.
