April 29th, 2023 - Native Plants: 

Interested in creating a native habitat in your backyard? Come learn about the native plants of Florida and how they are beneficial to our local wildlife. Learn how they are easier to maintain than the non-native plants brought in by other nurseries. During this program, you will also have the opportunity to gain volunteer hours by help the Cox Science Center and Aquarium plant a butterfly garden.

Do you know why some plants and animals are listed threatened, endangered, or extinct in the wild? Come learn about the difference between their conservation status and why and an animal would be listed as Endangered. Learn about the impacts humans and invasive species have on the survival of native wildlife.
