The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is holding regional workshops to present information on opportunities for local governments to help conserve gopher tortoises in Florida.
The goal of these workshops is to identify ways local governments can participate in protecting one of Florida’s threatened species.
A June 25 workshop is scheduled in Leon County. Representatives from local governments in nearby counties are encouraged to attend.
