This Friday is #FloridaArborDay and we’re celebrating all week because WE 👏 LOVE 👏 FLORIDA 👏 TREES 👏. 💚🌴 Trees are the ultimate air, water and land protectors. 🌎 They keep our shorelines resilient, purify the air we breathe, and provide food and shelter for humans and animals alike. This week, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite Florida-native trees found throughout our state parks. Want to celebrate with us? Here are a few ideas: 🌳 Share photos of your favorite trees using #FloridaArborDay. 🌳 Volunteer for a clean-up at one of our 175 state parks. 🌳 Plan a tree identification hike. 🌳 Read a book or listen to a podcast about trees. 🌳 Plant a tree in your yard (check out UF Florida-Friendly Landscaping Program for more info on eco-conscious landscaping in Florida). *** 📍: St. Andrews State Park 📸IG: codylaubphotography ⭐️: Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum) . . #FLStateParks #StAndrews #TheRealFlorida ...
