Lend a helping hand to plant Scrub lupine


Put off your holiday shopping and enjoy a day outdoors for a good cause - volunteers are needed to help plant 400 Scrub Lupine seedlings at the Tibet Butler Preserve near Orlando. Scrub Lupine (Lupinus aridorum) is one of Florida's most endangered and beautiful spring bloomer. Volunteers will meet at the preserve at 9 a.m. Interested?
