UF/IFAS Sumter County Ext. Wildflowers at Dade Battlefield

09/07/2012 - 9:00am - 11:00am

As a part of the Sumter County Extension office’s joint educational program with Dade Battlefield, a presentation on “Wildflowers at Dade Battlefield State Park” will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the Lodge at Dade Battlefield followed by a tour and hands-on instruction on how to maintain your wildflower beds.  The tour will end at 11:00 a.m.  UF/IFAS Urban Horticulture Agent, Brooke Moffis, will be our speaker.  You may choose to be a spectator or to work with us "hands on." If you decide to work with us, please come early as you will need to fill out some paperwork for the park; also, bring your gloves, pruners or clippers and be ready for a fun, learning experience.
