Florathon 2018 is a team competition benefitting Letha’s Youth Outdoors Fund, a project of Indiana Native Plant & Wildflower Society. Teams of two to six people—traveling together as a group—visit natural areas in Indiana during a 24-hour period of their choosing between Friday, April 14, and Sunday, May 13, 2018. The object is to identify as many native plant species in flower as they can.
Team members enlist sponsors (family, friends, office mates, church group, carpool, businesses, whatever) who honor the team’s efforts by making a donation to the Indiana Native Plant & Wildflower Society. This year’s Florathon proceeds are earmarked for Letha’s Youth Outdoors Fund, which puts kids in touch with nature.
