Exploring Ethnobotany in Fort Myers Beach


I admit I wasn't too surprised - even spell-check doesn’t recognize the word ‘Ethnobotany.’

But don’t let the fancy-smancy name scare you off. It’s just the study of the relationships between people and plants. And, it’s actually pretty interesting to learn how Sunshine State plants can be used for food, shelter, medicine, clothing, as well as the historical importance of some of them to humans – particularly when you’re just a splash away from fabulous Fort Myers Beach!

You can enjoy Exploring Ethnobotany with a Florida Master Naturalist the last Wednesday of every month at Matanzas Pass Preserve (199 Bay Road, Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931, Venue Phone: 239-949-4615). Just meet at the entrance. The next event is 9:30 - 11 a.m., Feb. 23, 2011.

The cherry on the cheesecake? These family-friendly events are free.

Just heard of ethnobiology today at Manatee Park on Palm Beach Boulevard. Looking for more information.
