10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Koreshan State Park will celebrate the 3rd annual Florida Gopher Tortoise Day!!! Discover just how fascinating this ancient species really is! They are fun to watch, but we must never loose 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. After the talk we will walk through out the historical village and inspect the burrows and watch the gopher tortoises go about their daily lives. Talk will be in the Art Hall of Koreshan State Park Reservations requested.  Please call 239-992-0311.
