Better Late than never ! We wanted to share the fun and photo's from a couple Saturdays ago.
We started in the plant nursery with City Parks Senior Naturalist Juan Fernandez. We planted Coontie seedlings.
Juan explained a bit about the plant and it's importance to the eco-system of Virginia Key. Coontie is a native plant and has an root that is edible if boiled.
As usual our participants and park staff had a wonderful day.
Chef Marta and her assistant were ready to instruct the class on how to make a delicious chicken salad.
At the end of the day, Denise Prehay led a discussion group with everyone to discuss how they felt thus far about their time at Naturelinks and with eachother.
