Welcome teachers, students, and parents! Here you will find gopher tortoise related information and activities for all ages. FWC creates a variety of educational reading materials on gopher tortoises. Brochures, fact sheets, information packets, activity books and more from FWC and our partners can be downloaded from our Education Resources Page.
Request FWC for an Educational Event
We love to be part of outreach events where we can bring tortoise-related activities and educational content. We have a treasure chest containing gopher tortoise artifacts such as tortoise shells, egg shells, snake skins, tortoise scat and other items. We also have our very own burrow, a life-size replica of an actual gopher tortoise burrow that you can crawl in.
