    🌿 Learn about natural Florida!

    Please join Dan and Nancy Kon from Imagine Our Florida- a non-profit organization focused on science-based education to teach people of all ages how to connect, respect, and coexist with Florida wildlife and within our shared ecosystems. At this meeting, they will be discussing the Florida Black Bear, dispelling common fears, and showing folks how to peacefully coexist with these iconic animals. They will also be bringing their ambassador, Slow Mama, a waif gopher tortoise! Dan and Nancy are renowned photographers in our region that dedicate their free time to spotlighting many of our beautiful plants and animals with interesting (and usually unheard of) facts and trivia that really get our community involved. Imagine Our Florida participates in many outreach events throughout our area and state, is business partners with PSI at Seminole County Schools and Orlando Science Center, and has a vibrant social media presence.

    Free admission. Donations towards YOUTH ECO-CAMP welcomed and highly encouraged at the meeting! Small selection of locally grown native plants also available for purchase (proceeds go towards YOUTH ECO-CAMP SPONSORSHIPS!)👦👧🏽👦🏾
