About the Instructor

Vivian Carlo is a Hobe Sound resident, and is currently raising her family here.  She is a Registered Nurse with a Bachelor's degree in Health Administration.  She has always loved yoga, and after realizing the benefits both on and off the mat, she decided to go for her teaching certificate at Native Yoga in Juno Beach, earning her 200 hour certificate.  

Bald Cypress Tree Planting

Within every location, contains a story. The tale of our Bald Cypress trees go way back to the times before our park was established. Most of the bald cypress in southern Florida were harvested by the lumber industry by the

1940s leaving only isolated strands of cypress that were too difficult for loggers to reach. This devastated the bald cypress habitat…

Years later more bald cypress trees were destroyed by salt water intrusion, leaving the habitat almost demolished.

But there IS hope!

The goal of Jonathan Dickinson State Park staff and also with the help from Friends of JDSP is to help rebuild this habitat located on our property. The goal is to plant 63 acres of bald cypress. This absolutely cannot be done without the help of our community. Through generous donations, and wonderful volunteers, we hope to meet this goal sooner rather than later. And now, we need YOU!
