Thought by many to be extinct, the Blue Calamintha bee, last sighted in 2016 at Archbold Biological Station near Lake Placid, Florida, has been rediscovered! Believed to be among the most geographically restricted bees in eastern North America, this species was only known to occur in four sites within a 16 square mile area of pine scrub habitat at Central Florida’s Lake Wales Ridge
Gopher tortoises are found in all 67 counties across Florida and have been on the planet for 60 million years!

We hope you can attend our next event, a beach clean-up, 10 – 11 AM, Saturday March 9, from the third beach freeway on Okaloosa Island (between Island Princess and the Fairfield Inn off Santa Rosa Boulevard). We have some pick up / reach extenders to help without stooping, and will finish with homemade cookies at 11 AM.
