Native Nurseries and Wild Birds Unlimited
Apalachee Audubon Society 7th annual Wildlife-Friendly Yards Tour, a self-guided tour of five local yards that are wildlife havens. Tickets are $10 per person and are now available for purchase at either Native Nurseries or Wild Birds Unlimited.
Each yard has unique features to attract a variety of birds and other wildlife such as wintering hummingbirds, orioles, tanagers, finches and pine siskins as well as our year-round residents. You will be inspired to maintain your own yard or green space for wildlife, whether it is one birdfeeder, one nest box, one wildflower bed, one garden path or one natural area.

(youth sports complex/baseball fields), Tallahassee
An invasive plant hands-on education program. Get great exercise and learn how to seek and destroy Coral Ardisia.
Learn about the problem of invasive plants, with a particular focus on Coral Ardisia, which is currently smothering much of the understory of this beautiful park and many other areas throughout Florida and Georgia.
In the field you will learn how to identify and remove this plant and actually remove some of it in a small designated area. You will also learn about other invasive and native species in this area.
Lunch will be provided. During this time, you will learn more about why this effort is important and how you can help in different ways appropriate for different activities (e.g., hiking, cycling, walking, your own back yard, and more).
Learn how to report invasive plant sightings: http://www.eddmaps.org/
Bring water, bug spray, garden/work gloves, and wear shoes appropriate for hiking. Bring a clipper and/or a shovel (pointed type is best) if you own them.
NOTE: This activity is not appropriate if you are severely allergic to poison ivy. Bentoquatam lotion will be provided for those who wish to use it.
