Insect Safari! Florida's Native Bees - Saturday, March 7, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. Join entomologist Christy LeDuc for this month’s fascinating talk. Christy will be talking about Florida's Native Bees.  It promises to bee an interesting and engaging talk, followed by a safari around the Preserve for hunting or all kinds of six-legged wildlife – catch and release of course. Nets will be provided while they last. ~Free program!

Science Saturday - The Eagle Lady - Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. Never seen a bird of prey up close? Here’s your chance!  Meet “Eagle Lady” Doris Mager of S.O.A. R. (Save Our American Raptors).  Age does not stop this dedicated raptor rehabilitator and educator.  At age 87 Ms. Mager is still teaching about birds of prey and the important role they play in nature. Learn about these birds of prey and meet Ms. Mager and a few of her feathery friends in person.

We have many exciting events happening in the next few months.  Be sure to visit our calendar or our education page for full listings.
