Pygmy Fringe Tree Flower Day

Pygmy Fringe Tree Flower Day

Thursday, March 7, 2019 / 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

SFSC Museum of Florida Art and Culture / MOFAC
600 West College Dr., Avon Park, FL  33825

Dustin Angell, from the Archbold Biological Station, will be speaking on the various plants indigenous to the Lake Wales Ridge; many of which grow on the SFSC Wildflower Wayside Shrine Trail, located on the SFSC campus in Highlands County.  This presentation will occur during a time when the Pygmy Fringe Tree is typically in bloom—a once-a-year occurrence and a beauty to behold. 

Attendees are welcome to walk the trail, following the talk.  Guidebooks, detailing the plants, will be available. 

Admission is free and open to the public.  No RSVP is necessary.
