Event description

Description

Just like other artifacts that archaeologists find, plant remains can say a lot about past people’s diet, environment, and culture. Native Peoples in Florida have used various plants as medicine, food, and other important purposes for thousands of years. Learn about some of Florida’s most useful native plants, and how archaeologists study preserved plant remains to find out how people used them in the past.

Additional Notes: It takes about 10 minutes to drive from the preserve entrance (Keystone Rd.) to the parking lot, and there is a 2-5 minute walk from the parking lot to the Education Center buildings. This program meets in the Auditorium or “Butterfly Room”.

UF/IFAS Extension provides practical education you can trust, to help people, businesses and communities solve problems, develop skills and build a better future.
