Longleaf Pine Restoration & Landscape Education

Seminole IFAS Extension Auditorium

EVENT BY Cuplet Fern Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society . Stetson University's Professors Cynthia Bennington and Karen Cole will be presenting on their Volusia sandhill pollinator project. 🤗 Click 'SHARE' to invite your loved ones! ⏰7pm-9pm 💯FREE Admission and Parking! 🤝 DONATE to show your support. Or JOIN if Cuplet Fern is for you! 😎Laid back, casual group- pull up a chair, relax, and enjoy the presentation! Help put chairs back after the meeting 🌿 Learn about natural Florida! MAIN PROGRAM PRESENTATION: The Volusia Sandhill Ecosystem Teaching Landscape, an ongoing, small-scale (1 acre) restoration of the historic longleaf pine forests of central Florida, was established in 2011 on the perimeter of Stetson University’s campus, and adjacent to the university’s earth science museum. Recognizing that the site is far too small to be considered a true ecological restoration, it is nevertheless perfectly suited to extend the educational outreach of the Gillespie Museum and to provide space for undergraduate research projects related to the ecological restoration of degraded urban spaces. With a current emphasis on the role of this urban fragment as a refuge for insect pollinators, we are working to increase the diversity of the understory and to create educational materials describing the importance of native insect species to native plant reproduction. We will share progress we have made, challenges met along the way, and our optimism for the future. Cuplet Fern is pleased to have Cynthia and Karen present to our community. Free admission.
