Celestial Lilies Hike in Royal Palm Beach, October 30

Date: October 30, 2018

Time: 5:30 pm

On October 30, 2018 join ERM staff at Royal Palm Beach Pines Natural Area for an evening hike where the focus will be observation of the endangered celestial lily (Nemastylis floridana). This beautiful but quirky plant only blooms in the evening in late October – early November making observation a rare treat. During this guided hike, we will meander through pine flatwoods habitat searching for celestial lilies. When spotted, the plants will be counted and their location recorded. This information will inform management decisions which will foster this rare plant’s continued survival.

Closed toed shoes, long pants, and bug spray are recommended.

Important Note: Be prepare to hike in wet conditions. Bring a change of pants and shoes.
