33photoThe Sumter Native Plant Society will meet on Monday, December 8 at 6 pm at the Sumterville Community Building, 2427 CR 522 (stone building 1/2 mile south of 470 on Hwy. 301). Steve Turnipseed will present “Restoration of Heavily Degraded Areas in Tropical Forests of Sumatra, Indonesia”. Steve will show us how a “regreening” effort using non-native species in areas with industrial degradation was changed into a “forest restoration” process using native species. Some fundamental rainforest ecology will be presented along with challenges of restoring a tropical forest. Procedures and results from the actual work will be shown
Please join us for refreshments and native plants for raffle.
