The Nature Coast Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society meets the
second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM at The Land O’ Lakes Community
Center, 5401 Land O’ Lakes Blvd/US 41, Land O’ Lakes, 34639, between
SR 52 and SR 54. The subject of the Tuesday, March 14, 2017 meeting is
“Florida Wildflower Foundation”, presented by Lisa Roberts. Lisa
became the Florida Wildflower Foundation’s executive director in 2008.
Under her direction, the Foundation established its annual Florida
Wildflower Symposium and the popular Seeds for Schools; Viva Florida and
La Florida Community Plantings grant programs; launched a new website and
wildflower research literature database; developed multiple publications,
including a Panhandle brochure that outlines wildflower viewing routes.
The mission of the Florida Wildflower Foundation is to enrich lives with
Florida native wildflowers through education, research and planting
projects. The Foundation is known worldwide as the most reliable source
of inspiration and information about Florida native wildflowers. We will
learn about the importance of wildflowers to our state’s culture,
economy, ecology and beauty, and the initiatives the Florida Wildflower
Foundation is undertaking to promote our native wildflowers.
Meetings of the Chapter are free, and all interested parties are invited
to attend, to bring questions about their yard, and participate in light
refreshments and the native plant drawing. Telephone inquiries are taken
by Sandy at (727) 207-1853.
