Coffee with the Town Manager to Be Held at Oakland Nature Preserve


Oakland Town Manager Steve Koontz invites the public to join him for coffee and conversation in March. This month’s Coffee with the Town Manager will be held from 9-10 a.m. on Thursday, March 19 at the Oakland Nature Preserve Museum, 747 Machete Trail, Oakland.

Residents will have an opportunity to ask questions and to share their thoughts and ideas about various issues affecting the Town. Coffee and light snacks will be served.

Oakland Nature Preserve Director Jennifer Hunt will offer guests an overview of the Preserve, a 128-acre hidden gem which offers environmental education and ecotourism activities for visitors of all ages. The mission of ONP is to promote an understanding of the fragile balance between mankind and the environment by educating visitors about Lake Apopka basin’s ecosystems and cultural history, and by restoring and conserving the lands within the Preserve.


Coffee with the Town Manager is open to the public and everyone interested is encouraged to attend. The monthly events are hosted by the Town at different locations on the third Thursday of the month from 9-10 a.m.

Non-profit, faith-based groups, Home Owner Associations or businesses that are interested in hosting a future Coffee with the Town Manager event should contact Administrative Services Manager Elisha Pappacoda at 407-656-1117 ext. 2113 or
