Weeds & Seeds to meet at Pond Apple Trail

By Staff | Feb 6, 2009

Weeds & Seeds are a group of amateur botanists who enjoy finding and identifying native plants on Sanibel. Every Monday morning, we gather on the porch of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF) at 8:45 a.m.

Our walks, lasting for approximately two hours, are guided by a leader with a plant list. The walks are free, but donations for SCCF are welcome. Also, you may need parking money. Participants are encouraged to bring a hat, water, sunscreen and comfortable enclosed shoes with socks.

The next Weeds & Seeds gathering will be on Monday, Feb. 9 at Pond Apple Trail I. Be among the first to enjoy the city’s new footpath. Learn how land under conservation is managed and what native plants thrive in that environment. And with a few keys, you can learn the most common native plants on the island.
