Every day, the pressure to produce food for our growing population increases. Yet, while more people depend on crop pollinators, the wildflowers that sustain them are vanishing.
JOIN US IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Since 2001, the Florida Wildflower Foundation has nurtured the awareness, understanding and enjoyment of Florida’s native wildflowers through conservation, restoration and stewardship. Whether through education projects, sponsored research, or advocacy that reduces roadside mowing, we are restoring biodiversity, creating beauty, and immersing people in nature while feeding the crop pollinators that feed us.
- Each year, 175,000 acres of natural and agricultural land in Florida is developed.
- More than 1,000 people per day move to our state, taxing our natural resources.
- Millions of wildflowers along thousands of miles of roads vanish each year due to a lack of knowledge of how to maintain them.
