PRAS Walkabout – Wildflower Preserve

February 14 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Feb 14 Tuesday at 8 AM
PRAS Walkabout at Wildflower Preserve
3120 Gasparilla Pines Boulevard in Englewood
Mike Weisensee will guide us in this 80-acre preserve located on the Cape Haze peninsula. Eva Furner will explain the history and ownership by the nonprofit, Lemon Bay Conservancy whose main goal is to provide a refuge for wildlife and opportunities for environmental education and scientific research. We start with upland habitats and continue to fresh water ponds that feed into the salt-water Lemon Creek. As Lemon Creek leaves the property, it connects into Lemon Bay.  A partnership between the Southwest Florida Water Management District, NOAA and the Conservancy completed the restoration project to convert this former golf course property into interconnected wetlands and native habitats in 2021. The eastern side has freshwater wetlands and the west has tidal wetlands. Last year saw 40 species.
