The Nature Coast Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society meets the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM at The Land O’ Lakes Community Center, 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd/US 41, Land O’ Lakes, 34639, between SR 52 and SR 54. The subject of the Tuesday, August 11, 2015 program is Movie Night with Popcorn, “What Plants Talk About”. Hard-core science is effortlessly integrated with a light-hearted look at how plants behave, revealing a world where plants are as busy, responsive and complex as we are. Plant ecologist, J.C.Cahill, and a variety of other experts in plant communication, take us on a journey into the “secret world of plants” where plants eavesdrop on each other, talk to their allies, call in insect mercenaries and nurture their young. It is a world of pulsing activity, with plants communicating, cooperating, and sometimes waging all-out war. Discover that plants are a lot less passive and a lot more intelligent than you think!
Meetings of the Chapter are free, and all interested parties are invited to attend, to bring questions about their yard, and participate in light refreshments and the native plant drawing. Telephone inquiries are taken by Sandy at (727) 207-1853.
