Roger will present his program on “Florida’s Wild Orchids.” Roger has photographed 96 of Florida’s 109 native orchids and discovered two species new to the flora of Florida. Roger was the recipient of the first Marjory Stoneman Douglas Award presented by the Florida Native Plant Society in 1982. He has been honored with the prestigious Charles Brookfield Medal from the Tropical Audubon Society and the Green Palmetto Award in Education from the Florida Native Plant Society. In 2012, Florida International University bestowed upon him an honorary Doctor of Science degree. He has received lifetime achievement awards from the Florida Native Plant Society, Tropical Audubon Society, and the North American Butterfly Association. Roger has presented keynote speeches at Florida Native Plant Society state conferences and the 2008 World Orchid Conference in Miami. He is an avid long-distance solo canoeist, kayak-fishing enthusiast, wildflower photographer, and birdwatcher. He has authored numerous books and field guides, including: Florida Keys Wildflowers, Everglades Wildflowers, Central Florida Wildflowers, Complete Guide to Florida Wildflowers, Exploring Everglades National Park, and Attracting Hummingbirds and Butterflies in Tropical Florida. Currently, he is the survivalist instructor for the Discovery Channel’s reality television show Naked and Afraid. Roger grew up in Cocoa Beach and moved to Homestead, Florida after being Honorably Discharged from the Army in 1968 as a tank gunner. He and his wife, Michelle, live in Homestead. Seating is limited, so Come Early! Take some time to browse through Roger’s books that will be for sale, have him sign your copy, chat with him, and be prepared to be entertained and educated by a thoroughly knowledgeable and dynamic speaker.
