VENUS — Florida scrub is justifiably well-known for its rare and endangered plants and animals. Dr. Eric Menges, who has been conducting research at Archbold since 1988, will lead a walk through several types of Florida scrub on Saturday at 9 a.m. Participants will be able to see spring flowering species. In addition, part of this hike will be in a recently burned area and we will see the effects of fire on the vegetation structure of scrub.

Dr. Menges stated, “April is the peak month for flowering plants at Archbold Biological Station. With new foliage on many of the scrub plants, it is a particularly lovely time of year for a walk.”
