Enthusiastic folks who wish to learn how to identify South Florida's wild plants
This Month will cap off our summer of exploration and we will meet on a Saturday and join the folks of the Dade Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society. Location of workshop is an empty lot next to some Railroad tracks owned by Miami-Dade Water and Sewer and the meeting time is 4:30PM. Location is at the intersection of SW 92nd Avenue and SW 74th Street. This site is just south of Sunset Drive (SW 72nd Street), and 92nd Avenue can be accessed from the west or east (there is a traffic light). Look for Steve’s big white pick-up truck. This lot is full of remnant pine rockland and marl prairie wildflowers along with some common native lawnweeds and is a must see. Feel free to bring any plants in for identification. We may go for beers and wings afterwards. You can follow me on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/hobobotanist
