UF Extension Butterflies and Wildflowers Bioblitz in St. Lucie County

Calling all interested Master Gardener Volunteers, Master Naturalists and interested members of the public! We need your help with the upcoming UF Extension Butterflies and Wildflowers Bioblitz in St. Lucie County.

Do you want to learn about local butterflies and wildflowers? This might be the perfect opportunity. The UF/IFAS Extension St Lucie County will be conducting a “UF Extension Butterflies and Wildflowers Bioblitz” on September 14, 2023, 2023 from 8:30 AM – 11 AM. This event will be hosted by UF/IFAS Natural Resources Extension Agent Ken Gioeli and Urban Horticulture Extension Agent Kate Rotindo.

During this bioblitz event, participants will use iNaturalist to catalog the butterflies and wildflowers on site. We will venture out on the trails at Steven J. Fousek Preserve to observe and learn about native butterflies and wildflowers in the preserve. Participants will be asked to install the iNaturalist app on their phone prior to meeting up on September 14, 2023 and join the project “UF Extension Butterflies and Wildflowers Bioblitz.” The Steven J. Fousek Preserve is located at 7793 State Hwy 613, Port St. Lucie, FL 34987.
