Lettuce Lake Native Plant Walks 2019 Schedule : First Saturday of the Month

Next Walk: September 7 at 9 am

Suncoast sponsors native plant walks at Lettuce Lake Park on the first Saturday every month except July, August and December.

These walks are designed for park visitors who want to learn about Florida native plants.  We do a slow stroll pointing out the native plants that the park supports.

Walks begin in the Visitor Center at 9 am. After a short presentation, we leave from the native plant garden and walk the trails and boardwalk.
