In most of the country, autumn/winter is the time of the year when nature goes dormant. In South Florida, this is our season– for growing gardens, for camping or playing outside without being attacked by mosquitoes and oppressive heat. And the sunsets this time of year are amazing!
Sunflower is celebrating the season with a free Family G.O. (Get Outside!) Event, tomorrow (Nov. 20), 3:30 — 5:00 pm, at Pondhawk Natural Area in Boca. All ages are welcome for hands-on nature exploration. Visit our Sunflower Meetup site for more info and to RSVP.
In the meantime, check out these nature resources from our blog and beyond:
