DeLand's Florida Wildflower and Garden Festival set for March 27 - Save the date!

Circle March 27 on your calendar and plan to attend the Florida Wildflower and Garden Festival in downtown DeLand. This year's festival will be bigger and better than ever, with a wildflower art contest, educational wildflower presentations,field trips, scavenger hunts, wildflower and native plant sales, children's activities and more! The Florida Wildflower Foundation has designated the festival as the site of a new bi-annual members meeting. Hotel packages for our members are in the works. Details on the meeting and events surrounding it to come! FWF members who are bicycling enthusiasts can devote the entire weekend to wildflowers and fun by signing up for Bike Florida's two-day DeLand package (March 27 and 28) - $125 buys participation in local rides, indoor or outdoor camping at Stetson University, events and all meals. Bike Florida also is beginning its cross-state ride in DeLand on March 29. Visit bikeflorida.org for details on this great 300-mile spring event, which include portions of the five-county St. Johns River to the Sea Loop, soon to be Florida's first wildflower trail. The five-day event will include a "Challenge of the Charities," in which cyclists will make pledges to support an area non-profit. The Foundation urges all cyclists to join "Team Wildflower" to pedal for petals! For more information on the Florida Wildflower Foundation, visit www.floridawildflowerfoundation.org.
