Join Topsail Hill Preserve State Park for their annual Earth Day Festival on April 29, 2017 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Enjoy more than a dozen different environmental organizations and agency exhibits, nature activities, games, animals, face painting and booths as well as food, music and fun.

An exciting part of the event is the participation in the #Trees4Earth campaign.

The park and event attendees will be planting trees on park property as part of this campaign.

There will be tram rides to the beach and bikes, canoes, kayaks and paddleboards will also be available for rent. Park admission is free during the event.

Crape myrtle workshop in Santa Rosa Beach
May 3 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

It’s summertime, which means it is time for one of the South’s best trees, the Crape Myrtle to shine. If an ultra-reliable, low-maintenance, colorful landscape interests you, then the Walton County Master Gardeners would like to invite you to attend “Everything Crape Myrtles,” the latest installment of the Walton County Master Gardeners Lecture Series on Wednesday, May 3th from 10 a.m.- 12 p.m. at the UF/IFAS Walton County Extension Coastal Branch, 70 Logan Ln, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459.

This workshop will feature Walton County Horticulture Agent Daniel Leonard and will demonstrate how choosing the proper cultivar of crape myrtle and maintaining them correctly can transform your landscape. Learn which cultivars flourish in Florida and why, which ones to avoid, how to properly prune and maintain them, and how to design a landscape using crape myrtle.

Seating is limited, so call (850)-892-8172 to reserve your spot!  Cost of the program is $5 (cash or check only) and will include presentation handouts, educational publications, plant raffle for some of the highlighted varieties, and light refreshments.
