Pinellas Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society Schedules Meeting
Florida's 700 freshwater springs are a critical component of Florida's ecosystems and provide important habitat for many plant and wildlife species. Join the Pinellas Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society at their monthly meeting on Wednesday, August 4, 7:00 p.m., at Pinellas County Extension (12520 Ulmerton Rd., Largo.) One of Florida's most respected geologists, Harley Means, will share his insight of these natural treasures. His talk will touch on spring ecology and how it is shifting due to water quality and quantity declines, and more deeply explore the geology of springs, why Florida has so many, their current status, and what is causing their declining water quality and quantity?
