Florida Bromeliad Conservation Working Group, 2019

November 22 2019 · 10:00am  – 3:00pm


The Mexican bromeliad weevil (Metamasius callizona) has been decimating certain native Florida bromeliads, particularly Tillandsia utriculata and Guzmania monostachia. It also attacks many cultivated species. Join experts from around the state to learn more about this ongoing threat to our iconic Florida epiphytes, and discuss possible solutions to reverse their loss.

Time: 10 am to 3 pm, with a working brown bag lunch. Snacks, water, and coffee will be provided (bring your own cups!).

Where: Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, 900 South Palm Ave., Sarasota, FL 34236, in the Great Room by the Bay
