Join us to celebrate our preserve’s most unique inhabitant—the gopher tortoise! We will have games, crafts, displays, and presentations all focused on this rare species and the important role they play in the environment. Enjoy storytime for young children, tortoise habitat hikes with ONC naturalists, and meet-and-greets with our ambassador tortoise “Sparky”. Participation is free thanks to a grant from the Gopher Tortoise Council and Friends of Okeeheelee Nature Center.
