JUNE 8 – TUE 7:00 PM – Chapter Virtual Meeting/Program – “Wildflowers on the Roadside, for Home Landscaping, and Along the Trail”. A presentation by Liz Sparks, Florida Wildflower Foundation, Panhandle Wildflower Alliance/ FDOT Liaison.
Discover why wildflowers matter along roadsides, in your home landscape and along trails. Learn what you can do to support the Florida Wildflower Foundation’s mission to create corridors of critically needed pollinator habitat along our state’s roadsides and beyond. You can support pollinators by planting native species in your home landscape to help connect public conservation lands to our urban spaces, mitigating habitat fragmentation caused by Florida’s rampant growth and development. Join Liz Sparks, consultant with the Florida Wildflower Foundation, to learn what’s happening locally and statewide, and how you can make a difference in your community. Go to https://flawildflowers.org/ to learn more about Florida wildflowers and activities of the Florida Wildflower Foundation. Liz is a long-term member of the Florida Trail Association and enjoys exploring Florida’s natural wonders by hiking, biking and paddling.
This will be a VIRTUAL presentation.
