The Wildlife Care team at Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park invites you to join them for an extra wild Panther Program on Thursday, March 14 at 2:30 PM. Ashlee O’Connor, a panther biologist with the Florida Wildlife Commission, will present about Florida’s largest wild cat, the Florida Panther, discussing history, habits, protection, and what you can do to help this iconic Florida animal.

At the beginning of the program, Rangers will hand out tickets for a drawing to be held at the end of the program. Ten program attendees will be selected to experience a behind the scenes panther training session with Park Services Specialist Andrea Junkunc. This exclusive opportunity will provide participants an up-close view of these cats, revealing their strength, intelligence, beauty, and why conservation of this species is critically needed.

This is a free program, however regular admission to the park is required. No need to register, just show up and have fun. For more information, call the park office at 352-628-5343.
