August 8, 2019 - REPORT FROM THE ROAD - MORGAN PARK - Arcadia, FL - RIVER LOOP TRAIL: I bushwacked and stumbled upon four teenagers smoking weed. They were scared so I comforted them by saying that I belived in total freedom with that and support their sweet time in the forest! Along the shaded trails two wild plants that I encountered were ripening SPARKLEBERRIES, a blueberry realtive and the non-native but impressive WAND RIVERHEMP in flower, Sesbania virgata.
