Continuing Education Course: Flora and Fauna of the Florida Keys

This listing has expired. View current opportunities here.


The Center for Coastal Ocean Research’s Flora and Fauna of the Florida Keys course examines the fascinating differences between the islands of the Florida Keys and how nature is responding to the presence of humans.

“Seeing the Keys through a biologist’s eyes and finding hidden treasures in every class adventure was a great experience. The classes not only increased my knowledge of flora and fauna but also my love of the Keys and their unique design.”

Martha Meroni

Participants meet on Saturday mornings for field trips throughout the Florida Keys.
