Wildflowers do much more than give La Florida, the “land of flowers,” its unique sense of place.
Because they’ve adapted to Florida’s conditions and pests, they typically
require less water, fertilizer and pesticides than other flowers. They also
support myriad native wildlife, from bees to hummingbirds.
Please join the Florida Wildflower Foundation at its 2013 Florida Wildflower Symposium. This year's two-day event will be held in Brevard County, with your choice of field trips and dinner at Dixie Crossroads on Friday, Sept. 27, and presentations, walks and workshops at the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary in Titusville on Saturday, Sept. 28.
Friday field trip options include a tour of Sams House at Pine Island Conservation Area, the oldest standing house in Brevard County; a wildflower excursion to Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, lead by retired biologist Jim Stahl; and a trip to Dicerandra Scrub Sanctuary, a 44-acre property where the endangered mint Dicerandra thinicola is found.more...
