April 17: Florida’s Native Orchids


 Park Focuses on Native Plants in April

 Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will be focusing on native plants and Florida’s orchids during the month of April. The Park is introducing monthly themes featuring natural and cultural resource opportunities in Florida State Parks.

A program on Florida’s Native Orchids will be presented by Park volunteer and orchid enthusiast Jeff Rundell will present a program on the many native orchids that grow in our state. He will have some examples on display.

In the early days of Homosassa Springs, the attraction raised exotic orchids in large greenhouses and featured blooming plants for sale in the building which currently serves as the Children’s Education Center. This building was originally the main entrance of Homosassa Springs Attraction.

As a Florida State Park the Park’s current focus is on our native plants and animals. Rundell will be concentrating on Florida’s wild orchids. This program will be held in the Children’s Education Center on Thursday, April 17, 2014, starting at 10:00 a.m.

Park admission is $13 per adult; $5 for children ages 6 through 12; and free for children age 5 and under. This includes an all-day visit to the Park and includes all Earth Day activities. For more information or to register to attend, please call Susan Strawbridge at the park office (352) 628-5445, ext.1002, Mondays through Fridays.
