Nature Coast Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society, Tuesday, October 11, 2022 Meeting Announcement

October 11, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


The Nature Coast Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society meets the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM at The Land O’ Lakes Heritage Park Community Center, 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd/US 41, Land O’ Lakes, 34639, between SR 52 and SR 54. The subject of the October 11, 2022 meeting is “A History of Hillsborough River State Park and It’s Future Challenges”, presented by Cheryl Metzger. Cheryl has been the Resource Management Park Services Specialist for Hillsborough River State Park for the past 5 years. She is the Burn Manager for the Park and oversees a team that treats non-native, invasive plant species in the 1,600 acre Park. Cheryl manages multiple restoration projects and provides training for staff and volunteers to manage the natural resources of the Park.
The Park has been historically significant since the beginning of the Second Seminole War which began in 1835, before becoming officially a part of the Florida State Park System in 1935 and the Civilian Conservation Corps involvement in its construction. With these cultural changes, the natural areas have changed too, some for the better. As the next 100 years approaches, what challenges will be faced in 2035 and beyond?

Meetings of the Chapter are free, and all interested parties are invited to attend and bring questions about their yard. There will be light refreshments. Telephone inquiries are taken by Molly at (813) 469-9597.
