CENTRAL FLORIDA NATIVE AND WILDLIFE FRIENDLY YARDS TOUR


Produced and Submitted by Mark Kateli, Tarflower Chapter


This was yet another great year with the "sister society" collaboration for the Central Florida Native and Wildlife Friendly Yards Tour

Florida Native Plant Society Tarflower and Cuplet Fern chapters, and the Orange Audubon Society,
host this event annually. It's a great exercise to help strengthen our bond around a common mission. This year, we had well over 100 attendees. 

A special thanks to noted environmental journalist Kevin Spear that published an article in the Orlando Sentinel that promulgated the event to people outside our usual sphere of influence.
Being Tarflower chapter Treasurer, I firmly believe that as we prosper, so will our neighboring chapters. 

I look forward to hearing from chapters that border Orange County- Lake, Osceola, Brevard, Volusia, and Polk chapter Treasurers- for more collaborative ideas that amplify attention to Central Florida and it's unique native plants.

Susan, I think that is a great idea and I will do my best to post some blogs like that. I also want to do more plant profiles.
