Florida Arbor Day: Let’s Explore Nassau

Trees play integral roles in our environments. Join UF/IFAS Extension Nassau County’s horticulture agent and ag/natural resource agent, alongside the City of Fernandina Beach and Wild Amelia to explore the true value of trees this Arbor Day! UF/IFAS Extension Nassau County’s extension agents will host two separate nature hikes – one at Egan’s Creek and another at Ralph Simmons WMA. In between hikes, we’ll celebrate with a Tree Planting Ceremony!

Feel free to attend both events or only one, but space is limited!
