Serenoa Chapter


Sereoans are invited to a wildflower walk on the Green Trail at T. Mabry Carlton Reserve in Venice on Saturday, November 26 at 9 a.m.  A recent prescribed burn has produced hundreds of wildflowers and attendant pollinators.

Directions to the Carlton: From I 75 take exit 193. Turn left onto Jacaranda. Turn right on Border Road. Take Border to the end and turn left on Carlton Parkway and right into the Reserve. We will meet in the parking lot. You don’t need to sign up. Just show up!

If you need more information call Fran Palmeri at 941-544-6148.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of the month, September through May, at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, 811 South Palm Ave in Sarasota.

A short business meeting is held at 7:30 and followed by the evening's program and plant raffle.
