Lettuce Lake Native Plant Walks 2020 Schedule :

The July Native Plant Walk is cancelled. While some Hillsborough County Parks and Preserves are reopening, Lettuce Lake Conservation Park remains closed. Even when it reopens, group activities may be curtailed. Any changes will be published here.

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.
