Description

Celebrate Gopher Tortoise Day 2020!

Join a park naturalist for a talk on gopher tortoises. Discover just how fascinating this ancient species is! They are fun to watch, but we must never lose sight of the fact that they are endangered.

Discussion will touch on behaviors, anatomy and fun facts, and the opportunity to hold and see the shells of specimens that lived in Koreshan State Park. There will be time at the conclusion of the talk for questions and clarification.

  • Reservations requested. Register online or call the ranger station (239) 992-0311.
