Palms at Leu Gardens
On July 20 the Central Florida Palm & Cycad Society will host noted author Donald Hodel for a presentation, "What's New In Chamaedorea." Hodel is an extension agent in California who has written extensively about palms, and is considered a world leader in palm taxonomy and horticulture. This free program will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Orchid Room of the Garden House at the Leu.
Supported by donors to Hilton Pond Center for Piedmont Natural History, Operation Rubythroat is a gem of a Web site devoted to hummingbirds. While the focus is our most common hummer, others are certainly included. The information is first rate, the photos exciting, and the invitation to join them for banding in Costa Rica in January 2009 is almost irresistible.
