Meet retired UF botany professor Dana Griffin at the Sweetbay parking lot at the corner of SW 20th Avenue and SW 34th Street. Dr. Griffin will lead a caravan to several locations near Gainesville where the wildflowers are at their best. Dr. Griffin’s “Local Flora” class was legendary and you’ll get to find out why without paying tuition or taking tests.

Difficulty: 2 (may involve uneven terrain one to two miles).


  1. Hi. I have been a member in the past, but I think my membership expired. My mom and I would like to join the wildflower trip. Is there anything in particular we should bring? Good walking shoes, binoculars and water for sure. Anything else?
    Thanks so much!

    • There’s nothing in particular you need to bring, but it never hurts to take along water, snacks, maybe some insect repellent or sunscreen. Non-members (and former members) are welcome at all Alachua Audubon functions.

  2. Hey there, I am wondering if there is an estimated time frame for the tour on Saturday?

    • Dana Griffin, the field trip leader, writes, “It’s a progressive agenda, so there are several points where one can leave the trip and return. The first point I’d estimate will come around 10:30, the second at 11:00. The trip ends at the museum in Cedar Key. That will occur on or about noon. After that those who are still on board will be invited to join us at Tony’s for lunch. All of these times are estimates.”
