Interested in learning about sediments, how they influence vegetation and how they are managed in Orange Lake?

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting a sediment management workshop March 8 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. to help inform the public and answer questions about Orange Lake sediments. The location is the Grand Lake RV and Golf Resort, off Highway 318 just east of Interstate-75, next to the Ocala Jai Alai in Citra. The meeting location is accessible.

Sediment and tussock management and the impacts on water quality will be explained.

Black bears may look slow because they walk flat on their feet (called plantigrade) like people and travel with a shuffling gait, but they can run as fast as 30 miles an hour.
