UF Extension Master Gardener and Master Naturalist Bioblitz

Do you want to learn about natural area native and nonnative plants? This might be the perfect opportunity. The UF/IFAS Extension offices of Martin, Indian River and St Lucie Counties will be conducting a “UF Extension Bioblitz” on June 29, 2022 from 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM. This event will be hosted by Extension Agents Ken Gioeli, Jennifer Pelham, Kate Rotindo, NIckie Munroe, and UF intern Sean MacWilliam at the UF/IFAS Extension St Lucie County in Fort Pierce. The intended audience is Florida Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners; however, interested members of the general public can also participate. During this bioblitz event, participants will use iNaturalist to catalog the plants on site. We will venture out on the unmarked, sometimes rough, trails learning about native and nonnative natural area plants on the UF/IFAS Extension St. Lucie County campus. We will also feature a stop to observe biological control agents being use on invasive plants such as Old World Climbing Fern and Melaleuca. Participants will be asked to install the iNaturalist app on their phone prior to meeting up on June 29th and join the project “UF/IFAS Extension St. Lucie County Natural Area Bioblitz.” UF/IFAS Extension St. Lucie County is located at 8400 Picos Road, Fort Pierce. Extension programs are open to all people without regard to race, color, sex, age, disability, religion, or national origin. Registration is required. This program is free of charge.
