Parks & Nature Connection

Parks & Nature Connection – a monthly series learning about Florida’s awesome flora and fauna!

Hiking with two friends at Crystal River Preserve State Park.

What I love about my job as a Recreation Program Specialist is connecting people to nature.

Parks & Nature Connection is an engaging program geared for adults to help them learn about Florida’s amazing ecosystems. It’s also a great way to meet new people that love being in nature and of course, make new friends.

It’s cool to be a Nature Geek!

Friday, August 19 kicks off the program with a visual presentation exploring basic bird biology, common feeder birds, and an introduction to birding and photography.
