CHEC's Acceso Especial al Parque

Event Description:

Celebrate Latino Conservation Week with us at the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center!

We will kick things off with the Florida Public Archeology Network as Natalie A. De La Torre Salas presents: Weeds and Seeds: A History of Dining in Southern Florida - Cattle, citrus, and many other common foods today were brought to Florida by the Spanish, so what were people eating before then? This talk covers what people would have had for dinner in Southwest Florida 2,000 years ago. Topics of environment, flora and fauna, archaeological research, and historical documents all come together to answer this question. 

Following the presentation, participants will enjoy a brief walk up to CHEC's visitor center to gain special access as the center is typically closed during the summer months. At the center, enjoy interacting and learning more about the animal ambassadors that live there, browse the gift shop and ice cream selections, explore educational exhibits, and more! This portion of the program will be presented in English and translated into Spanish.

Ven a celebrar con nosotras!
