Weedon Island Preserve is a wild place, a place where natural systems are carefully preserved. How are these systems maintained in the most densely populated county in Florida? What steps do we take to help gopher tortoises and other native species survive and thrive? How do we balance our passive recreation activities with the need to keep Weedon’s ecosystems wild and natural? Who plans for the future of Weedon Island Preserve?
These and many other questions will be answered in this segment of “Why It Matters”, featuring Pam Leasure, the Environmental Lands Manager of the Weedon Island Preserve. Ms. Leasure will give us an inside look at the some of the many fascinating aspects of her work - how she solves everyday challenges at the Preserve, what resources she has to do so and she’ll also help us understand what a Land Management Plan is and how is it used. In addition, we will get a good idea of what we can do as visitors to the Weedon Island Preserve to help maintain the precious balance of recreation and wildlands.
