Nature Coast Florida Native Plant Society meeting March 13 in Land O’Lakes
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 13, 2018 meeting is “Landscaping for Pollinators” presented by Jackie Rolly. It’s not just about landscaping for butterflies! This program will introduce us to other pollinators, what we should plant and how to create proper habitat. There will also be information on the problem with cultivars and invasive exotics.
Jackie is a resident of Seminole County and a member of the Tarflower Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society since 1997. She retired from Navy Civil Service after 30 years, and as a 4th generation Floridian, she can now pursue her passion of conserving and preserving native plants of the Florida she once knew. She is also active on the board of the Oakland Nature Preserve and is Restoration Committee chair, helping restore the Preserve from an Orange Grove/Pulp Farm back to the original Sandhill habitat!
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.
