January/February Plant Rescues

Over 1,000 native plants rescued so far this year!  As development in Central Florida continues to reduce pristine native habitat areas, plant rescues are vital to preserve genetic diversity and create (or supplement) native plant communities in conservation areas.  We only rescue on sites where landowners give us permission to remove plants, and the plants we have rescued have gone to Lake Louisa State Park, Oakland Nature Preserve, and the Little Italy restoration area at Lake Apopka's North Shore.  The added benefit for rescuers is the great opportunity to see native ecosystems up close and learn about native plants that are not cultivated or sold at nurseries.
