Pinellas-Florida Native Plant Society

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Gopher Tortoises, Plant and Animal Communities, and Prescribed Fire

Gopher tortoises love prescribed burns; find out why.
Speaker George Heinrich, field biologist and popular educator, tells how
the frequency and timing of a prescribed burn helps maintain species
richness and an open forest canopy.   You will discover how it affects
upland habitats and greatly benefits plant and animal communities.   The
public is welcome.   Bring a friend and join us for conversation,
socializing, Q&A, our speaker for today, free refreshments, and a silent
plant auction.
