Join the Florida Wildflower Foundation for a spring tour of one Florida's most beautiful wildflower corridors on Friday, April 8 from 9:15 a.m. until 3 p.m. State Road 65 in the Apalachicola National Forest is widely acknowledged as the best place in Florida to view native wildflowers. And spring is a great time of year to see pitcherplants, as well as butterwort, pineland daisies, pink Coreopsis and many other species. Dr. Loran Anderson of Florida State University will lead this driving tour of what's blooming along State Road 65.
The trip will depart from T&P Foods in Hosford (MAP) at 9:15 a.m. -- or come early (8:30 a.m.) and join us for breakfast. Participants will drive their own vehicles (carpooling is encouraged). We will stop for lunch at the Family Coastal Restaurant in Bristol (MAP). Meals are not included in the $25 fee. Participants may bring their own lunch and resume the tour after others eat at the restaurant.
This event is free for FWF members; the cost for non-members is $25. For more information and to register, click here.
