Take a Walk Session: Florida Wetlands, Mangroves and More….
The Florida Aquarium tells the story of Florida’s water, but it also tells another story. With more than 80 plant species native to Florida, the wetlands gallery is as much native garden, aviary, and zoo as it is aquarium. Horticulture Curator, Julia Stack will guide us through the wetlands gallery, discuss the history and maintaining of the botanical collection, and showcase one of the largest interior displays of mangrove forests in the world where we will discuss the three species of the most threatened plant in the Florida environment: the red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle), the black mangrove (Avicennia germinans), and the white mangrove (Languncularia racemosa). Stack will also discuss her efforts in keeping the entire botanical collection chemical free. Pre-registration is required. Attendance is limited.
