FORT MYERS, Fla. ( May 23 , 2014)
The Academy of Lifelong Learning welcomes Author Charles Sobczak for “Florida’s Wildlife” on Tuesday, June 17 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the Grand Cypress Room at The Woodlands at Shell Point Retirement Community.
Author Charles Sobczak will draw on the extensive research he conducted for his last four nature-oriented books for this intriguing presentation about the wildlife of Florida. The course will begin with a look at the Paleo-Indian arrival in a much wilder and warmer environment more than 12,000 years ago. He will then cover the arrival of Ponce de Leon in 1513 and the early agricultural development of Sanibel. After a look at the recent rebound of wildlife in urban areas, Sobczak will review the impact of climate change and the future of Florida.
Tickets for each session are $10. Space is limited and registration is required by calling (239) 489-8472. If you are unable to attend a class that includes a fee, kindly give 24 hours notice to receive a refund.
