The FNPS’s theme this year “Transitions” is pertinent to the Nature Coast region of Florida in a number of ways – sea level rise, migrations of ecosystems due to climate change, and the transition zone between north and south Florida. In this region you will also see the transition of cave system into Karst, spring flows to tannic flows, and water quality transitions. The region also has a large diversity of plant communities and the transitions between uplands and wetlands are common, dramatic and highly visible – a great place to introduce people to Florida’s diverse natural communities.
