St Lucie County’s Wonderful Wildflowers

St Lucie County is known for its pristine beaches and nature preserves.  We are truly fortunate.  Take time to explore the county’s natural areas and discover the abundance of wildflowers native to our area.

On October 2, 2012, a team of Florida Master Naturalists lead by Joanna Huffman worked with the UF/IFAS Extension St Lucie County and elected county officials to adopt a Wildflower Resolution.  A copy of the resolution can be found here.

So next time you head out for a hike, don’t forget your camera!  Take time to appreciate the beauty of our native wildflowers.  UF/IFAS has field guides to help with identification.
