Teachers are expected to receive plants in September, when schools are expected to reopen in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Wildflower horticulturalist Jeff Norcini, of OceoHort LLC, is hitting the road for the Florida Wildflower Foundation to locate roadside wildflower populations in Florida’s Big Bend and north Central Florida regions. The goal of the surveys is to build a network of native wildflower habitat along roadsides to host insect pollinators as they travel between farm fields and forests.
The Florida Wildflower Foundation (FWF) and Florida Native Plant Society (FNPS) have strengthened their partnership in order to collaborate on future projects. The organizations will assess opportunities to team up on such initiatives as native plant surveys, native plant conservation, roadside issues and more.
