Self-guided Wildflower Tour

Tosohatchee's beautiful wildflowers are pleasing to visitors and important to wildlife. Enjoy the wildflowers but leave them for the next person. Please remember, it is unlawful to cut, damage or remove plants from the WMA. 

This site was developed in cooperation with volunteers from  the Tarflower and  Fern Cuplet Chapter of the Native Plant Society and the Florida Wildflower Foundation.
