FNAI Field Guides to the Rare Plants and Animals of Florida are now available FREE, to anyone who wants to pick them up at our office. The field guides were originally published in 2001, so some technical information is now out of date, but they are still a very useful reference for Florida's rare species with excellent photos and drawings. To set up a time to pick up Field Guides from our office please call our Office Manager Dorothy Gochnauer at 850-224-8207 ext. 201.
