ELLIE SCHILLER HOMOSASSA SPRINGS STATE PARK
MAY 25, 2018 1 PM
Park volunteer Jodie Lanier, a member of the Citrus County Native Plant Society will present a program in the Florida Room of the Visitor Center at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park on native wildflowers of Florida. She will introduce you to the many varieties of wildflowers and advise you as to which of these plants can be successfully incorporated into your landscaping, and which can only survive in a specialized habitat. She 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 shuttle boats and gives a narrated tour of Pepper Creek. Jodie Lanier is also 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. There is no charge to attend this wildflower program.
