SWFAS Guest Speaker, Dr. Rachel Wentz -- Exploring Ancient Florida

Time: 7:00 pm til 8:30 pm

Location: Bonita Springs Community Hall, 27381 Old US 41 in Bonita Springs

Description: Exploring Ancient Florida
Dr. Rachel Wentz
Millions of years ago, the peninsula that would become Florida broke from the west coast of Africa, settling into its present location. Since then, its landscape has gone from an African-like savannah to a tropical paradise. Ancient mega-fauna that once roamed the forests and grasslands disappeared as humans arrived. Come see what Florida was like for the earliest Native Americans.
