Quarterly Central West Regional Master Naturalist Workshop December 13, 2008 9:00AM - 2:00PM
Where: English Creek Preserve located 1/2 mile west of the Hillsborough-Polk county line on State Road 60
Hosts: Hillsborough Community College, UF/IFAS Plant City Campus and FMNP Graduate Alligator Bob
To Reserve Your Space: please RSVP by 12/9 to Alligator Bob (FMNP grad Bob Young) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Guests welcome.
Please Bring a covered dish to share for lunch plus your own plate, bowl, cup and silverware. (We want to minimize our ecological footprint by not using disposables--especially no Styrofoam.)
Our program will be a Native Tree Tour developed by Dr Michael G. Andreu & Mary E. Thornhill. We will also view some of the history at this site, including the natural spring that local slaves used for their Baptisms and much, much more.
Specific Directions to English Creek Preserve: I-4 East toward Orlando, Exit at County Line Road, South to State Road 60, left 1/2 mile on your left is the entrance. That should get just about everybody coming from the north, south and west of Tampa there the easy way.
This preserve is not open to the public, so I do not have a street address other than it is in the Plant City address of the Hillsborough Community College (HCC).
There is a large sign at the entrance and we will meet in the learning center.
Please forward to all the naturalist you know so everyone will get the word.
You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts." ~ Richard Feynman
