University of Florida/ IFAS Extension has been offering this series of field trips since January 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.
The diversity of water-dominated landscape features in the Florida Panhandle have allowed hot-spots 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!
