Sanibel author Charles Sobczak will debut a new eco-entertainment lecture, “Rewilding Florida” at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26 at the Captiva Memorial Library, 11560 Chapin Lane. Admission is free of charge and ample parking can be found in the adjacent parking lot.
The Power Point presentation will focus on the current progress Florida is making in its effort to create a statewide wildlife corridor from the Everglades to the Okefenokee Swamp. Sobczak mixes humor with ecology and helps explain the importance of cores, corridors and carnivores in restoring wild lands. He will discuss why we need all three of them to maintain healthy ecosystems.
The presentation will also delve into the broader rewilding efforts across the planet. From major land acquisitions to what you plant in your front yard, this is a “don’t miss” program.
Sobczak, an award-winning author who has written several novels including Six Moorings on Sanibel and has been a featured lecturer with Road Scholar for more than 10 years, will have copies of his books available for purchase and signing after the presentation. Sobczak was named the Best Speaker about the Florida environment in 2020 by the Florida Weekly and has appeared on Book TV, done numerous presentations at The Conservancy of Southwest Florida, J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, among other venues.
Rewildlife Florida on Jan. 26 should be both informative and entertaining. Call the Captiva library at 239-533-4804 for additional information.
