Tallahassee, Florida - July 6, 2011 -

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will conduct regional workshops to present information on the management plan and permitting guidelines for gopher tortoises.

The goal of these workshops is to identify ways local governments can participate in protecting one of Florida’s threatened species. In addition, presenters will introduce other FWC programs of interest to local governments.

Wakulla County is the location for the first in a series of regional workshops that begin July 8. Representatives from neighboring counties are encouraged to attend. The workshops are free, but registration is required, as space is limited.
