Natural Resources webinars hosted by UF/IFAS faculty

Natural resources are abundant in Florida, but it’s not always possible to go out and explore in person. UF/IFAS Extension faculty have created a variety of virtual programs (webinars, Facebook live, podcasts) to share science-based information with you in the comfort of your home or office.  These programs are free and open to anyone (unless otherwise noted), and can be “attended” from anywhere with only a computer/smartphone and internet connection.

Below is a list of the virtual programs focused on natural resources in Florida that are occurring in the next few months.  Click on the link for more information about each program and contact information for the UF/IFAS faculty hosting the program.  New programs and dates are continually being added; check back frequently for updates!
