On Thursday, February 1, 2018, Park Ranger Fiona Southwell will be presenting “Seasons in the Swamp” to the Southwest Florida Astronomical Society. In an environment where the only constant is change, where birds arrive and depart, where water falls in torrents and then recedes, new life will be birthed as the seasons change. Join Ranger Southwell on a seasonal journey through one of the most interesting and ever-changing ecosystems in the world – the Big Cypress Swamp. Ranger Southwell’s presentation will begin at 7:30pm in the Planetarium. As usual, the monthly business meeting of the SWFAS will follow immediately thereafter. Free and open to the public.
