I love free events. Especially ones that involve Florida wildlife, and that's what the upcoming Florida Panther Festival in Naples is all about.
On Nov. 10, you should check out the Florida Panther Festival at North Collier Regional Park. The focus of the event is to increase awareness of the Florida Panther while promoting the safe coexistance of people, pets, livestock, panthers, and panther habitiat. I know I mentioned that it was a free event, but I'd like to mention that again. No cost. Nada. But feel free to bring along a few bucks to drop into the donation box and to grab a bite to eat at the festival.
Take part in guided field trips to panther habitiat and conservation areas. Live music and performances will be held at the festival, and there are plenty of presentations and family-friendly events going on throughout the day.
