Explore Volusia: Longleaf lunch and learn

Event Date(s)

Begins: March 15, 2017 11:00 am
Ends: March 15, 2017 1:00 pm

Take an eco-buggy tour of Longleaf Pine Preserve and learn about the Volusia Conservation Corridor, an expansive north-south pathway that allows wild animals to move through Volusia County and provides humans an opportunity to enjoy Central Florida nature. The guide will provide a history of the area – from native inhabitants and explorers to present-day development and encroachment on native vegetation and habitats. Bring lunch and meet at the preserve’s west entrance, 3637 E. New York Ave., DeLand.

The eco-buggy will be parked one-tenth of a mile from the parking lot; if you are unable to walk this distance, ask for accommodations when you register.

Volusia County’s Environmental Management Division sponsors Explore Volusia to acquaint residents with the county’s conservation lands and land management practices.
