On Tuesday September 10, 2019 the Florida Chapter held an excellent workshop on upland communities of Florida, hosted and instructed by staff of the University of Central Florida Arboretum. We learned about the ecology of five major plant communities, including identification of many plant, tree and shrub species, critical land management activities, and a few feature wildlife species dependent on these uplands. The afternoon spent exploring beautiful examples of the communities was the course highlight. Thanks to the two dozen participants that attended (despite the timing just after Dorian) and to the superb UCF instructors. Stay tuned for forthcoming information about the Chapter’s 2020 Spring Meeting in Jacksonville!
