Don’t miss Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife’s first meeting of the season on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m., via Zoom. The guest will be Amber Crooks of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, who will present a program about the endangered Florida panther. She will talk about a recent victory for the panthers and how the proposed toll roads will negatively impact the animal.

The meeting is open to the general public. If you would like to join, please email CCFW as soon as possible, as attendance is limited. Email address: CCFWOWL@gmail.com
