Lyonia Preserve is home to a variety of species of reptiles, including gopher tortoises. These long-lived gentle reptiles are keystone species because they dig burrows that provide shelter to hundreds of other species.
LEC staff will lead an exploratory hike into the scrub to look for reptiles in their natural habitats.
Advance registration is required; call 386-789-7207, ext. 21028.
