Remember those endangered #wildflowers threatened by development at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve in #StPete? A compromise was met and the development will be relocated to a spot further away. Meanwhile, volunteers from @boktowergardens, @sunkengardensstpete, and @friendsofboydhill spent last Wednesday at the preserve monitoring the status of an #endangered wildflower only occurring in two counties in Florida; the Nuttall's rayless goldenrod. We love it when a plan comes together!

Are you familiar with Nuttall’s Rayless Goldenrod (Bigelowia nuttalli)? This rare and endangered plant is only found in two locations in Florida- one is within the sand scrub uplands at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve!

Although it doesn't look like much more than a small tuft of grass for most of the year, peak bloom season is nearly here for this plant. We’ve partnered with 
@boktowergardens to clone this desirable native species, monitor its health, and learn more about the conditions it needs to thrive within the Preserve.

Have you heard the love story yet? Legend has it that the story of these statues is that they are two star-crossed lovers looking at each other across the pond. .
