Florida Wildflower Foundation: Creating and Restoring Native Wildflower Habitats
Show Notes

The mission of the Florida Wildflower Foundation is to protect, connect and expand native wildflower habitats through education, research, planting and conservation. With Florida being one of the fastest growing states in U.S., there has been an increase in urbanization and habitat loss due to development.  

Stacey Matrazzo, Executive Director of the Foundation, shares with us the benefits wildflowers can provide for pollinators and wildlife, and the programs they are employing to combat biodiversity loss. 

Tune in to hear about: 

- How wildflowers affect our ecosystem 

- Grants and programs supporting the purchase, planting and education of wildflowers 

- Research and resources available to the public 

- Upcoming events
