Event Details

Volunteers needed to help count the endangered Florida golden-aster. This is the third monitoring event since the plants were installed in 2010. This will be an “all day” workday but we can certainly accommodate folks who can only work a partial day.  Everyone staying for the entire day will need to bring their lunch.  Meet at 8:45am at the Cultural and Natural History Center.  Please come dressed for the weather, prepared to work outdoors, with closed-toed shoes, sun protection, and a water bottle.

 We will be recording the following data for each number-tagged plant

1)      Survival status (dead or alive),

2)      Stage (new seedling or adult), (reproductive or not)

3)      Measurements (height and width of each plant)
