As we near 2013 - the 500th anniversary of Ponce de Leon's naming of "La Florida" for its wildflowers - the Florida Wildflower Foundation is working hard to preserve our native wildflowers for future generations.
We are pursuing many exciting initiatives for 2010, including the development of school curriculum, research that will lead to better knowledge of propogation methods, and a manual that will help landscape architects and other professionals to establish and maintain successful wildflower plantings.
As 2013 nears, we also are working diligently to identify wildflower-profuse routes upon which Florida's communities can build "green" tourism opportunities.
Thank you for all you have done to support the Foundation's work in 2009. As you make your charitable gifts this holiday season, we hope you'll consider sending a contribution to the Foundation. It is through the generosity of people like you that Florida's wildflowers will be preserved for generations to come.
Warm wishes for a happy holiday season,
Florida Wildflower Foundation
