It used to be, you had city centers and the rest was raw, beautiful Florida. Come to our Downtown and support what is left of Florida


THIS IS A FREE EVENT (registration info below)

John Moran, one of Florida’s premier nature photographers, will speak on Tuesday, November 13th from 4:30 to 6:00 PM at the Jacksonville Downtown Library’s Hicks Auditorium. The Late Bloomers Garden Club, the Jacksonville chapter of the Garden Club of America, is presenting this free program with the sponsorship of the Haskell Company and in partnership with twelve northeast Florida nature conservation groups.

Mr. Moran has spent thirty years photographing the natural beauty that is Florida and in so doing, has captured the history of change. He is a featured speaker with the Florida Humanities Council as well as an in-demand keynote speaker for the Florida convention industry. He has shared the stage with fellow keynote speakers such as Bob Graham, Tom Brokaw and Colin Powell.

In March of 2013, he will open an exhibition at the Florida Museum of Natural History entitled Springs Eternal: Florida’s Fragile Fountains of Youth. He describes the exhibit as “A visual celebration of the springs we were given, a meditation of the springs we could lose, and an invitation to the people of Florida to fall in love with our springs all over again, mindful that the choices we make today foretell the Florida of tomorrow.”

The program is open and free to the public but registration is requested as seating is limited in the auditorium. Registration is available online at or or call 904-285-7020.
