Panhandle Outdoors 2012


University of Florida/ IFAS Extension faculty are planning and leading this series of field trips for Panhandle residents to explore and learn about the Panhandle’s signature aquatic resources and the plant and animal communities they support. All are special places, most are protected, many are unique in the Southeast US, and some have global significance. The Florida Panhandle boasts a diversity of landscape features resulting from uncommon combinations of underlying rock, elevation, groundwater and surface waters. This diversity of water-dominated landscape features has allowed hotspots of high biodiversity to evolve and flourish here. Come see and learn about the role of water in creating our ecological outdoor wonderland that IS the true Florida Panhandle… outdoors and LIVE!
