Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery, 7204 Co Rd 234, Gainesville, FL 32641

Join Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery Executive Director Carlos Gonzalez and Florida Wildflower Foundation Executive Director Stacey Matrazzo for a tour of PCCC’s meadow restoration.

Learn how PCCC has revitalized a once-degraded landscape and returned it to a thriving natural system that enhances the biodiversity of this serene and special landscape. Funded in part by a Viva Florida Landscape Demonstration Garden grant from FWF, the meadow is part of PCCC’s long-term active program of land restoration.
