Description

Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park invites everyone to come out and celebrate Gopher Tortoise Day with one of the Park's resident gopher tortoise ambassadors. Learn about tortoises, hear their stories of survival, and get an up-close look at this fascinating threatened species. You'll leave the park with a better understanding of how important gopher tortoises are in their habitat and what you can do to help protect them. Every visitor into the park will also receive a token of tortoise appreciation (while supplies last).
