INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — The Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory (FMEL) will offer its fifteenth volunteer stewardship training class. This free 6-week class would be a great way for Master Gardeners to learn more about Florida’s diverse native flora and fauna. Space is limited. We ask that class participants share what they learn in a venue of their choice, i.e., as Master Gardeners.
Classes are conducted on Saturday afternoons from 1:30 to 4:30 pm. Each class begins in the Boathouse of the Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory, University of Florida, 200 – 9th Street SE (Oslo Road), Vero Beach.
