Saturday, December 3, 9:00 AM. This is a tour of Bill Dunson's Manasota Key yard. In less than one acre there are (or were) more than 165 species of plants, some of which were severely damaged by Hurricane Ian. We’ll compare the very distinct results for different species with your own experiences and consider how landscaping should be modified to cope with future storms. Address is 2535/2545 N Beach Rd, Englewood. This is located almost exactly 0.5 mile north of Englewood Beach Park so you can park there and walk, or park along the roadsides, but be sure to stay off the bike path. By that time, hopefully, most of the storm debris piles will be gone. If you have questions, please email Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The focus of the walk will be on the different effects that hurricane Ian had on various plants, and how to plan your yard for the future. Although you certainly do not need to have an extensive knowledge of plants to understand and benefit from this evaluation, the list is provided for those who want to add to their knowledge.
