Did you know... Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers are called “Lubbers” because the root for that word means clumsy - in the same way a “Land Lubber” refers to a clumsy sailor; these flightless Grasshoppers are very slow and wobbly! Daggerwing Nature Center Naturalist Lila Capra shares some more cool facts about the native Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers.

Eastern Lubber Grasshopper

Q

Do Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers fly?

Q

Where can you spot Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers?

A

Lubber Grasshoppers have wings but they cannot fly. Grasshoppers belong to the family that also includes locusts, and while locusts do fly, this species of grasshopper is flightless.

A

Q

What do Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers eat?

Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers are native to all of the Eastern United States. Here in South Florida they can be found year-round. Most of the time, the females will lay eggs in the winter or autumn and the baby Grasshoppers emerge as tiny nymphs around March, making them a very well-known summer insect in Florida.

A

Grasshoppers are herbivores, which means they eat plants, so its mouth parts, which are called mandibles are designed for chewing plant matter, not animals.

Q

How do they help the environment?

A

Grasshoppers are an excellent foodstuff to birds and other small mammals like raccoons, skunks, foxes, and even rodents. Many birds that are nesting in spring and summer will feed Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers to their young. In addition, they perform a very essential role with plants in natural areas by keeping them in check and making sure plants don’t take over different places.

Lila Varel-Capra talks about Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers in Animal Encounters.

For more about how you and your family can stay safe while visiting playgrounds, visit our YouTube channel, PBC Parks TV.

Follow these tips from public health officials to make sure playing on the playgrounds is an enjoyable experience for everyone:

As kids get back to swinging and sliding, the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department sanitizes playground equipment daily, however, because playgrounds are used throughout the day, it should not be assumed the equipment is sanitized prior to your use. You should take all recommended health precautions as you would when touching any shared public surface.

Park Feature: Belvedere

Heights

2508 Bridgeman Drive West Palm Beach Florida 33409 The Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department is happy to announce a brand new park, where kids can swing, slide, spin and more! Belvedere Heights Park is located in West Palm Beach in the Belvedere Heights Neighborhood, on the corner of Florida Mango Road and Bridgeman Drive. It’s a neighborhood park, just over a quarter of an acre in size, but don’t let the size fool you – PBC Parks staff were able to fit a lot of amenities inside the park. There’s a playground for kids ages five to twelve, swing sets with bucket seats for infants, belt swings for older kids, and an OmniSpin Spinner for ages two to twelve, which is great for cardiovascular exercise and accommodates all children. One of the focal points of Belvedere Heights Park is the

half-court basketball setup, which is great for local neighborhood kids and families to play and practice their game. “It’s right in proximity to the playground, so parents can have some kids playing basketball while other kids can be on the playground at the same time,” said Casey Pranckun, Landscape Architect for PBC Parks.” “There’s bench seating to accommodate people not only near the court side, but also in the playground,” Pranckun continued. The park also features Florida-friendly landscaping, making natural shade another key feature of the park. Pranckun recalled, “we planted Sabal Palms to the side of the basketball court for

shade – they’re going to fill in and make nice shade there as the sun comes up and over, and then... ...we also planted a beautiful Live Oak tree in the center of the playground, which is not only going to be a focal point as it grows in, but also provide natural shade for the park.” Shifting to the park’s ground cover, Perennial Peanut Grass adds a great view in the form of yellow flowers, and is drought-resistant and only needs to be maintained twice a year, making the park both kid and environmentally friendly.

In 1903, it was expanded as Harry and Susan began to have children, to include a porch, additional bedrooms, a second story, a bathroom and an attached kitchen. Inside the house, everything structural is original, including some original glass windowpanes. The home is built atop of a Native American shell rock midden and is rich in both historic and archeological value. The midden was originally over 600 feet long and 20 feet high – and the Hill is a remnant of one of the last coastal shell mounds in Southeast 16

Florida. Artifacts dating back several thousand years have been discovered at this site, and the entire park was once a thriving village where ancient Floridians lived. The Pineapple House, located in the park near the home, was once located on a piece of property near present day U.S. Highway 1, on a plot of land where Harry DuBois farmed pineapples. The little shed was built to store the harvested crops. Harry later purchased a plot of land, now DuBois Park, as the site of the home that he would bring his new bride home to. DuBois floated the Pineapple House up the river to DuBois Park, and lived in it while he constructed what is now the DuBois Pioneer Home atop the shell midden. To learn more about the history behind the DuBois Pioneer Home, visit pbcParks TV to view a series of virtual tours from docents, as well as interviews from friends and relatives of Harry and Susan DuBois.

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT International Coastal Cleanup 2020 On October 17, 2020, in partnership with Ocean Conservancy, Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful and our AdoptA-Park partners, Clearwater Marine Aquarium and Surface 71, we celebrated the 35th anniversary of the International Coastal Cleanup by organizing multiple cleanups at our county beaches. The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) is a global movement to collect and document the trash littering our coastline. Despite concerns due to COVID-19, Palm Beach County saw an excellent turnout of volunteers working together to take care of our beaches in a safe manner. Lourdes Ferris, Executive Director of Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful, Inc., said, “We have been coordinating this cleanup in Palm Beach County for many years and we are proud of the efforts of all the volunteers and organizations that participate. While the ICC looked a little different this year, the ocean needs us now more than ever. When our volunteers join the International Coastal Cleanup, they are one of the most immediate and impactful solutions to keeping plastics out of the ocean. Since the first ICC in 1986, 16.4 million have joined local cleanup efforts big and small to remove 344 million pounds of trash from beaches and waterways around the globe, all the while also participating

Firebush is a semi-woody shrub that’s native to Florida. It has very showy, red, tubular flowers – which is how it gets it’s name, “Firebush”. Daggerwing Nature Center Manager, Sean Malleee, shares some more interesting facts about this “f iery” plant!

How is Firebush beneficial to the environment? Since Firebush is a native plant, they’re beneficial to the native wildlife, helping to provide a source of food and cover for native animals. The flowers attract pollinators, including Zebra Longwing Butterflies, Fritillary Butterflies, and even Queen Butterflies. The flowers also attract Hummingbirds – which can be seen on native Firebush at Daggerwing Nature Center! The flowers, once pollinated, will grow into black berries, which produce food for song birds and native wildlife, like raccoons, squirrels, and other mammals.

What conditions do Firebush grow best in? Firebush grow throughout the year, from Spring through late Fall, and though they bloom best in full sun, they can also survive in the shade. Native Firebush are adapted to the soil type in Florida – sandy, well drained soil. Because Firebush is a native plant, they are very well-adapted to the environment in Florida, proving to be very heat and drought tolerant.

How do you tell the difference between native and non-native Firebush? One of the ways you can tell the difference between native and non-native Firebush is the color of the flowers; on the native species, you’ll find bright red flowers, but on the non-native species, the flowers appear more yelloworange. The leaves on the nonnative variety are also smoother in texture, while the leaves on the native Firebush tend to have a fuzzy feeling. View the video: www.youtube.com/pbcparks

ACTOR ZACHARY GOTTSAGEN RISES TO FAME WITH LOCAL PBC PARKS ROOTS When you sit down with Peanut Butter Falcon actor Zachary Gottsagen, it’s hard to not be inspired by his cando attitude, optimism, and great kindness and unfettered belief in others. Gottsagen was a performer with the SpotLighters, a program at the CMAA Therapeutic Recreation Complex, and frequently participated in arts, music, acting and improv programs that Arts4All – Florida – Palm Beach County offered. The mission of Arts4All – Florida – Palm Beach County is to create a society where people with disabilities can learn through, participate in, and enjoy the arts. These arts programs, and other opportunities throughout the county, are what he says helped him work on his skills. Though he’s participated in a variety of programs, he particularly enjoyed improv classes taught by Mr. Nate, and the SpotLighters program with Ms. Kat, which is a two-hour tribute to dance and music performance featuring community kids, teens, and adults of all abilities. “[We] played some games, go for the parts, to play, fool around, and all that,” Gottsagen said, when asked what his experience was like in Arts4All. Gottsagen expressed that these arts and recreational programs have helped him tremendously. “Just to be doing like so many things, like put on a show, and just give the people,” he said. “I’ve definitely been doing a lot, like learning… acting, I just love

doing it,” he went on to explain. In addition to acting, Gottsagen has also been dancing for more than 14 years at a local dance studio. In the movie, Peanut Butter Falcon, which was released August 2019, Gottsagen plays Zak, a young man who has been consigned to a nursing home and escapes with the intention of finding a wrestling school run by his idol. Zak’s dream is to become a famous wrestler, whom he calls, the “Peanut Butter Falcon.” Along the way, he finds LaBeouf’s stern character, Tyler, who agrees to help him find the wrestling school. The two embark on a heartwarming journey that takes them through cornfields and across train tracks. The movie was essentially written for Gottsagen, by Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz. Gottsagen met Nilson at Zeno Mountain Farm, a place for individuals of all abilities to participate in arts programs, travel, play sports, and more. As for future endeavors, Gottsagen explained, regardless of where he goes, he wants to continue acting. At the end of the day, Gottsagen said what he wants everyone to take away from the movie, regardless of ability, is that inclusion is important, and that everyone should be given equal opportunities to follow their hearts. He said he would advise everyone to, “follow their dreams, and they have to follow their hearts and stay in school and just keep on studying a lot and work hard, and then, they’ll reach the top,” he said.
