Florida Deserts: Our Fragile Upland Communities
Florida may be known for its aquatic habitats, but the dry upland "desert" communities are well worth it for your next adventure. Join us for a talk with Brian Lane, Senior Ecologist with Sensing Nature LLC, as he takes us on a trek through our sandy Florida habitats. Although it is very hot in the uplands, no water is required for this exploration.

This webinar is recommended for adults and families (suggested ages of 7 years old and up).

This program is sponsored by the Friends of Weedon Island. Our Friends support the Weedon Island Preserve through education, preservation and protection of its habitats, ecology, and cultural history. Learn more about our Friends at https://friendsofweedonisland.org/.

May 21, 2022 10:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
