Vince “Trapper” Nelson came to Jupiter in the early 1930s and soon established a permanent camp on the upper Loxahatchee River. Trapper’s Zoo & Jungle Gardens became a local tourist attraction, drawing visitors to picnic, see wild animals, and meet the man likened to a modern Tarzan. For the 50th anniversary of his mysterious death, join Historian Josh Liller to learn more about one of Jupiter’s legendary characters. This lecture is part of the Prof. Robert Farley Living History Lecture Series.
