Selby Gardens & Plant Conservation in Everglades National Park

Below is a link to a story in The Observer about our work on rare plants in Everglades National Park. Some of the species we worked with are quite rare, some with only a few dozen plants remaining in the United States. The actual planting-out last week of two hundred plants went very well in spite of the hordes of mosquitoes, the heat, and a close encounter with a rattlesnake. There is no guarantee that the plants will survive, but we left the park feeling good about their chances in their new home.
