Giving Challenge Kick-Off:
Lecture: The Nature of Southwest Florida: Cultural Beginnings and Natural Endings

What do we know about Florida’s first people? The Mississippian peoples traditions hint at the beginning of Florida's fishing culture. Here in the 21st century we are still learning from the past. Discover the secrets of the ancients with Karen Willey of Around the Bend Nature Tours as she discusses the interaction between indigenous people's and their native landscapes.. Karen is co-founder of the Trail of Florida’s Indian Heritage, a state-wide network of public archaeology sites.
