    1. Wekiva River Program
      6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Wekiwa Springs (w is used for the springs) is a second-magnitude spring that attracts thousands of visitors monthly. One of two Florida rivers declared a Wild and Scenic River, the Wekiva River (v is used for river) is a national treasure that is experiencing pressures from urban growth throughout the region. Florida declared it an Outstanding Florida Water, Florida State Canoe Trail and Aquatic Preserve because of its natural beauty and biological importance.
      Join us August 17 at 6 p.m. to learn about this watery resource from Barbara Howell, Aquatic Preserve Manager. Howell has spent decades working to preserve this region first as an active citizen and volunteer. Howell moved to Eustis from Miami 25 years ago and began volunteering with the Watershed Action Volunteers, LakeWatch and Lake County Water Authority. She earned a degree in Environmental Studies at Rollins College and spent years paddling the Wekiva River. In 2001, Howell became an Environmental Specialist with the FL. Department of Environmental Protection at the Wekiva River and Tomoka Marsh Aquatic Preserve. Recently promoted to Aquatic Preserve Manager, Howell is a Beautyberry Native Plant Society, Oklawaha Valley Audubon Society and US Coast Guard Auxiliary member.
      Hear from Howell what impacts recent development, growth and building of the Wekiva Parkway (a 25-mile toll road that completes the beltway around Orlando) had and will have on the aquatic preserve. Learn what is being done to protect wildlife and maintain nature connections as the parkway is built and completed.
      This free program is held at the Trout Lake Nature Center on August 17, 6 p.m., 520 East CR 44, Eustis. $5 donation is suggested to support this independent non-profit’s future programs. For more information, email tlncdirector@gmail.com or call 352.357.7536.
