EcoAdventures - The Rare Plants of the St. Joseph Bay State Buffer Preserve

Produced by: Rob Diaz de Villegas
Original Air Date: April 2, 2012

Meant to provide a buffer between developed land and the pristine waters of the Saint Joseph Bay Aquatic Preseve, the SJB State Buffer Preserve has much to offer of its own. Lying at the edge of the Apalachicola Watershed, it is home to an unique ecosystem that lies in the transition zone between wetlands and pine flatwoods. In this fire dependent system, one can find an abundance of rare plant life. Dr. Jean Huffman takes WFSU-TV producer Rob Diaz de Villegas into the wiregrass to look for rare and endangered plants, in particular, the Chapman's Rhododendron. For more information, visit In the Grass, On the Reef.

The video features music by Pitx and Airtone.
