A public workshop on preserving habitat for gopher tortoises, which are endangered in South Carolina, will be at 8:30 a.m. Thursday and Friday at the Ridgeland Farmers Market.
Gopher tortoises live in longleaf pine forests, and their name is derived from the burrows they dig. The workshops will teach about the species, and how to restore and protect their habitats. The farmers market is at 9935 Jacob Smart Blvd. South in Ridgeland.
To attend, call Natural Resources Conservation Service specialist Diane Leone at 843-726-8148, extension 3.
