      Gopher Tortoises - What the Naples Preserve is Discovering about Them

      If you are looking for something to do that is fun, free and educational, the Naples Preserve is focusing its Spring Nature Talk Series primarily on the natural habitats and ecosystems of Southwest Florida. Speakers will include rangers, researchers, foresters and other subject-area specialists from a variety of the region's parks, nature organizations and educational institutions. The series will include photographs and artifacts, and the speakers will inform as well as dispel myths. The programs are free and open to the public. Visitors may also take a stroll on the preserve's boardwalk and watch the many birds, gopher tortoises and other small animals that call the nature sanctuary in the city home. The presentations are suitable for adults as well as children over the age of 7 who are keenly interested in nature.
