I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees. The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets. It has given me blessed release from care and worry and the troubled thinking of our modern day. It has been a return to the primitive and the peaceful. Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and benumbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy.

The History of the Lake Apopka Basin
Presented by:
The Friends of Lake Apopka
Oakland Nature Preserve
Thursday, January 28 - Tanner Hall - 7:00 P.M.
Public is invited at no charge.
Jim Thomas will give a talk on the history of the Lake Apopka basin,
starting with the Paleo-Indian periods beginning about 13,000 years ago,
covering the cultural history that included the arrival of early settlers and
continuing up to today. This interesting review covers many changes that
occurred in Florida, including climate changes, changing cultures and a
look at how our ancestors lived.
Interested residents are urged to attend the talk and bring any artifacts
they may have to show and, perhaps, to donate to the ONP Museum.
Knapping”, is the art of creating points used for hunting and tools by early Native Americans.
