NATIONAL PUBLIC LANDS DAY - RESTORATION OF THE AZALEA GARDEN
Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

Date: Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 9:00 a.m.

Description:

Come join Park Rangers and Park Volunteers for the Florida Park Services First Volunteer Project, an initiative to help in the protection and conservation of Florida’s natural areas for all time!

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park will host National Public Lands Day September 27, 2014 starting at 9:00 a.m.

The Park Rangers at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park thought long and hard about National Public Lands Day this year and for our project we chose the “Restoration of the Azalea Gardens,” an area we all love and want to see restored! Park Rangers and volunteers will start the restoration project of a once storybook-like area of the park. This is a section that we would like to bring back. There are cultivated and wild azaleas in this section and as the project continues we would like to add plants native to this area of Florida. There are currently marble benches that were once used for having lunch, reading a good book or practicing a fiddle or banjo on and all of us would like to see this area used again in that way. There is also a spring fed stream that runs through the garden that once had a little bridge over it. This could also be an area that we may consider using to recognize those who were and are influential to the success of the Florida Folk Festival. We would like to start by clearing it of overgrown vegetation and pulling some invasive plants (mainly coral ardisia). We are hoping to include the local chapter of the Native Plant Society and Florida Master Gardeners in this effort as well as anyone who would like to be a part of this project! A project that will benefit current and future generations of park goers! Come and be a part of it long term or just for a day. We would love have you!
