EUSTIS – The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is inviting residents to attend an event entitled “Introduction to Limnology” on Saturday, Sept. 1, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Lake May Reserve, located on County Road 44A, northeast of Eustis.
With guidance from Park Rangers, participants will get “hands-on” as they study the inner workings of Lake May through water sampling and data analysis. Attendees will also learn the importance of thoroughly monitoring a lake, and expound upon the many variables that contribute to its overall health.
This event is free, and would-be participants are encouraged to bring water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and hiking shoes. Reservations are recommended, but not required.
The Lake May Reserve is a 136-acre site that features a diverse natural terrain. Nestled within the reserve is Lake May, a 20-acre lake that supports an abundance of wildlife. The landscape includes xeric oak hammock, as well as upland scrub, pine and hardwood forested areas.
For more information about this event, or to make reservations to attend, call the Lake County Parks & Trails Division at 352-253-4950, email email@example.com or visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/parks.
