Wildflowers and Wetlands Presentation May 25
On Friday, May 25, 2018, Park volunteer Jodi Lanier will present a program on the native wildflowers of Florida. The program will start at 1:00 pm in the Florida Room of the Visitor Center located on US 19. Lanier will introduce you to the many varieties of wildflowers throughout the state. She will advise you as to which of these plants can be successfully incorporated into your landscaping, and which can only survive in a specialized habitat. The Citrus Chapter of the Native Plant Society will be holding a native plant sale after the program. There is no charge to attend this wildflower program.
Jodi is currently the leader of the Homosassa 4H Club with a focus on environmental science and loves teaching children and adults how to kayak and be active outdoors. As a volunteer for Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, she drives the park’s pontoon boats and gives a narrated tour of Pepper Creek. Jodi Lanier is a member of the Citrus Chapter of Florida Native Plant Society and describes herself as an environmentalist. Her favorite subject is ecology and she is working toward becoming a Florida Master Naturalist, so she can utilize her knowledge through nature interpretation and teach people the importance of conservation.
