Tuesday, June 21, 2011, 10:00am-4:00pm (begin boarding buses at 9:45am)
Optional Pre-Conference Tour to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden
Cost: $70.00 per person
What does the Pre-Conference Tour Fee Include? The fee includes transportation costs, boxed lunch, admission into the park, and light snacks & bottled water.
Recommended Clothing and Items to Bring: It is going to be very HOT in June in Florida. We recommend wearing cool, light clothing. The park mentioned that sneakers would be the best option for shoes. We recommend wearing insect repellent and sunblock. We will provide you with bottled water to take with you. It would be a good idea to bring a small knapsack to keep these items in.
