Gopher Tortoise Bucket Trapping at Cape Haze Pioneer Trail
CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla.

A total of four burrows are slated for relocation due to their proximity to the existing asphalt trail. This project will begin April 24 and could take up to one month to complete. The Cape Haze Trail will be available for use without interruption.
