**VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY** Golden Aster Counting Event
Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EST)
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)
For more information please contact (727) 453-6500
