Announcements

Field trip Tuesday April 12 with Helen Roth, on her property near Quincy which she calls Spring  Canyon. This property includes ravines and steepheads with their associated slope forests. This is a unique ecosystem with many unique plants. We are timing this visit in order to have a good opportunity to view blooms of some of our most beautiful natives including native azaleas, mountain Laurel and Florida anise. We will meet there at 9:00 central/10:00 eastern.  I will send out a separate email with specifics. 

We will be having a table at the Earth Day event from 10:00 until 4:00 on Saturday April 23 at Oaks By the Bay. Join us at our table if you like or else stop by. We will have some native plants for sale there.

On Saturday April 30, we will re-visit Ponce de Leon Sate Park with Ranger Fred Provost. We went there last fall and were excited to see the wide variety of natives located at the southern part of the park, including several species of pitcher plants. I will be sending out more information on this as we get closer to the trip. Go ahead though and get it on your calendar!

 

Hope to see you at some of our upcoming events!
