Wildflower Preserve is an abandoned Golf Course located in Grove City Florida that was purchased by the Lemon Bay Conservancy, and through the dedicated work of volunteers is being transformed into an educational nature preserve. Several old golf course ponds are covered with duckweed. This video shows efforts to remove duckweed and reduce nutrients in one pond. Funding for this water quality work was provided by a grant from the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program (CHNEP)
