Blogging LIVE from Tallahassee

This is a busy conference and there is so much to do and learn. If you have not pre-registered, you may register onsite. Registration is in the lobby of the downtown Doubletree Hotel Thursday night until 9pm or at the Leon county Civic Center on Friday or Saturday mornings starting at 7am. See http://fnps.org/pages/conference/ for pricing and schedule of events. Hope to see you soon!

I'm here talking to Tom Greene, member of the Magnolia Chapter, who assisted on the field trip to Apalachee Wildlife management area and Three Rivers State Park. A total of nine folks went on this trip. Highlights: several sand hill communities and found a number of rare plant species. They talked about how burning is an important factor for some of the rare natives found there. After lunch and a hike in the state park they took another side trip into Chattahoochee Nature Park where looked at plants living in a ravine system: a watershed area of the Apalachicola River. Most of the participants were from other areas, but even the locals learned a lot.
