Silver Springs State Park

The Florida Wildflower Symposium is the Florida Wildflower Foundation’s signature annual event. It's the only educational gathering of its kind, focusing exclusively on Florida’s native wildflowers and the wildlife that depends on them.

The eighth annual symposium will offer field trips to local natural areas, hands-on workshops, and educational presentations by experts on planting and growing native wildflowers, creating habitat for pollinators, and much more. Join us for this fun and informative event at the historic Silver Springs, one of Florida's first tourist areas, with its beautiful botanical gardens, expansive natural areas, and crystal blue artesian springs.
